This Little Ugly, cute animal is called (Tarsier). One of the interesting things I witnessed during my trip to Philippines in the Island of Bohol. It looks like its not from this planet (YOGA from Star Wars anyone!). The name Tarsier is derived from its its elongated “tarsus” or ankle bone.
Tarsier’s eyes are fixed in its skull; they cannot turn in their sockets. The eyes are disproportionately large to their body. These huge eyes provide them with excellent night vision. In bright light the tarsiers eyes can constrict to until the pupil appears to be only a thin line. In dark light the pupil can dilate and fill up almost the entire eye. The large membranous ears are mobile,appearing to be almost constantly moving, allowing the tarsier to hear any movement.
The Philippine tarsier is not a large animal; it measures only about 85 to 160 millimetres (3.35 to 6.30 in) in height, making it one of the smallest primates.
The Philippine tarsier has thin, rough fur which is colored gray to dark brown. The narrow tail, usually used for balance, is naked or bald except for a tuft of hair at the end, and is about twice the body length. Its elongated “tarsus,” or ankle bone, which gives the tarsier its name, allows it to jump at least three meters from tree to tree without having to touch the groun
If you ever to be in Philippines, Tariser is a must see animal. Like I said they are unique and out of this planet. If you have a wide aperture lens, it perfect for the condition in that particular place. Its bit in the dark side, so you need good light, and as well the Wide Aperture would give you a good depth of field effect (out of focus effect), something you need to isolate this remarkable animal. I used my Macro 105mm 2.8 which worked perfectly. But anyway wide aperture lens should do fine.
