The Philippine Tarsier is an endangered species and is one of the world’s smallest primates.

The ones we saw had the height that spans an adult hand, with eyes that look like it was occupying half of its head. It had a really long tail, bony hands and feet. It looked less like a monkey and more like a cross between E.T, a marsupial and a rat (because of the tail, though Kangaroos have long tails too). We tried to be really quiet and to walk around as softly as possible as we were told that they are incredibly shy and solitary creatures.
