The Philippine tarsier (Tarsius syrichta) is a petite, nocturnal primate that lives on a diet of insects. It is the first documented example of primate that communicates with purely ultrasonic frequencies.
if your happy and you know it hug a tree . I'm a tarsier ! The Philippine Tarsier has been called “the world’s smallest monkey” or “smallest primate” by locals before. However, the Philippine Tarsier is neither a monkey nor the smallest primate.
Re: Pinner's comment: Tarsier in Bohol, Philippines- is an endangered species. "This is the smallest monkey in the world". This is not a monkey, it belongs to the primate order, but is in the tarsier family.
Tarsier is one of the smallest primate in the world. It thrives mostly in secondary dense forests with a diet of insects. This nocturnal creature has the unique ability of being able to turn its head 180 degrees as well as to jump backward with precision.
Tarsiers are haplorrhine primates of the family Tarsiidae, which is itself the lone extant family within the infraorder Tarsiiformes. Although the group was once more widespread, all the species living today are found in the islands of Southeast Asia.
