Camera Critters



Camera Critters


100_1560


This is the Philippine Tarsier is a tiny animal, measuring about 85 to 160 millimetres (3.35 to 6.30 in) in height makes this one of the smallest primates. The small size makes it difficult to spot. The mass for males is between 80 and 160 grams, usually lighter for females, somewhat heavier than other Tarsius such as the Pygmy tarsier. The average adult is about the size of a human fist and will fit very comfortably in the human hand. It has thick and silky fur which is colored gray to dark brown. The huge eyes provide this nocturnal animal with excellent night vision. All for now, have a lovely weekend everyone. To view more camera critters around the world, just click the badge above.
