Philippine Tarsier in Bohol

Yup, it's a tarsier. Got the photos when I visited Bohol somewhere in Visayas, Philippines.

Tarsiers are nocturnal but I'm wondering why this one's awake during the afternoon I saw it at the park. Maybe it was awakened by the noisy visitors trying to have a peek on the tiny primates.


  1. Bohol's tarsiers need to be preserved. Those we found along the river of Loboc, Bohol are already stressed out because of too many tourists viewing them.

    1. I can't agree with you more. Some tourists are really noisy and some even try to shake the tarsier on the tree just to get the attention of it.

      The park staff should warn the visitors more and should be stricter in implementing rules to protect the tarsiers.
