Tarsiers belong to the Tarsiidae family of haplorrhine apes. They are little nocturnal animals with big eyeballs; each eyeball measures around 16 mm (0.63 in) in diameter and is thought to be as large as, if not larger than, the entire brain.
They have long limbs and fingers, and their heads can spin 180 degrees in each direction, allowing them to see 360 degrees around them. Tarsier has a 91kHz hearing frequency.
They are shy animals who are easily startled by loud noises, physical contact, or bright lights.
What do they consume?
Tarsiers eat spiders, termites, cicadas, beetles, moths, ants, grasshoppers, walking sticks, cockroaches, crickets, caterpillars, and katydids as well as other insects.
Is it possible for them to blink?
Tarsiers are unable to blink, therefore they clean their eyes with their tongue.
Why do kill themselves?
This is because tarsiers are shy and nervous creatures, and activities like handling them, using camera flashes, and keeping them in a cage tend to stress them out when they are in captivity. When a tarsier is upset, it smashes its skull on objects, which eventually kills it.
Where can you find them?
They reside in dense forests, thick scrubland, and even agricultural land as tree-dwellers. They can be found on the southern Philippine islands of Celebes, Belitung, Natuna, Sumatra, Borneo, and Baryka.
What is their life expectancy?
They have a two-to-twelve-year lifetime.
