Camera Critters



Camera Critters


DSC00393

This picture was taken in Bohol when we had a vacation with my friends just recently. In Bohol province, they are known for its big-eyed Tarsier. The Philippine Tarsier is a tiny animal, measuring about 4 to 6 inches (15 cm) in height. The small size makes it difficult to spot. The average mass for males is around 134 grams, and for females, around 117 grams. The average adult is about the size of a human fist and will fit very comfortably in the human hand. I was amused looking at him, I took a shot so when I get home I could post it to my blog. To view more camera critters, just click the logo above.
