STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the world's smallest primate?
The world’s smallest primate is
only around 4 to 6 inches in length. The Tarsier lives in the rainforests of
Sumatra, the East Indies, Sulawesi and the Philippines. The Philippine Tarsier
is most commonly found on the islands of Bohol, Samar, Leyte, and Mindanao.
The tarsiers sleep during the day in dark hollows
close to the ground and they love the tropical rainforests where there is dense
vegetation and trees.
They are most noted for the large goggling eyes
they are very large when compared to their tiny little bodies. They have very
thin tails that are twice their body length. They enjoy hunting at night and
enjoy a dish of insects.
