21 Funny Philippine Tarsier Pics You Will Love


The Philippine Tarsier is as cute as a button, and you can not help yourself but to admire this funny little animal if you happen to stumble upon it. All because the Philippine Tarsier is one of the smallest mammal specie on Earth, but are simply adorable with their curved up little bodies. And even though Scientists have claimed that they have no natural enemies, they still find themselves on the Possible Extinct Specie List, because they are being killed, taken as pets, sold on the black markets and even being eaten as delicacies. And another reason for this animal facing possible extinction is the fact that it only gives birth to one Tarsier at a time after a 6 months gestation period. And here some more quick fun facts about the Philippine Tarsier:




  • They are nocturnal animals and should not be disturbed at day time
  • Their main diet is insects and should not be fed with meat
  • They commit suicide during captivity due to trauma from touching and loud noise
  • They’re one of the slowest fetal growth rates of any mammal, taking 6 months to reach a birth weight of 23 grams
    • They are solitary and territorial animals
    • A single tarsier needs at least a hectare of space per individual
    • They don’t belong in a cage
  • ClassMammalia
    OrderPrimates
    SuborderProsimii/Haplorrhini
    InfraorderTarsiiformes
    SuperfamilyTarsioidea
General. 
The Philippine tarsier has a gray fur and a nearly naked tail. The middle finger is elongated. Head and body length are around 118-149 mm; It weighs 113-142 grams. Males are larger than females.

Eyes. 
In comparison with his body size, the eyes of the tarsier are enormous. In volume, the capacity of the bony eye orbits, or eye sockets, is larger than that of the brain case, and also larger than its stomach. Their eye sockets have post-orbital closure rather than the postorbital bar of the prosimians. This feature keeps the eyeballs from being pressed against by the powerful temporal muscles to their sides.

Tail. 
The tarsier has a relatively very long tail (232 mm), generally naked except for a tuft of hair at its end. The underside has dermal ridges like those found on human hands and feet. Its tail is used for balancing like a tripod; they prefer an erect posture at all times.

Head. 
Like an owl, the tarsier has a joint between its skull base and spine to allow head movement of a 180-degree arc. Its upper lip lacks a cleft yet, but still has muscles, so that it can make facial expressions. The adult brain weighs about 4 grams.

Teeth. 
Tarsiers have sharp teeth, enabling them to catch their prey easier. Unique among primates, tarsiers have only two, rather than four, incisors in their lower jaw. Their dental formula is 2.1.3.3 1.1.3.3 x 2 = 34.

Ankle bones. 
The name "tarsier" or "tarsius" is derived from the animal's very long ankle bones. The tibia and fibula of the tarsiers are fused in their lower portions, acting as a shock absorber. This is considered a primitive trait, which can normally be seen in quadrupeds. The lower limbs are twice the length of its trunk. These enable the tarsier to leap about three meters from tree to tree. Its movements are similar to that of a frog.
