The tarsiers Philippines
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The tarsiers

The Philippine tarsiers are the world's smallest primate, these nocturnal creatures with huge eyes have a head that can swivel 360 degrees! Not much bigger than the human hand, the tarsier suffers from the effects of deforestation and illegal capture where they become highly stressed and therefore die earlier. The only legal place to see tarsiers in the Philippines is at the Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella, Bohol.
