The Philippine Tarsier

tarsier.jpgFriends,

This is a Philippine Tarsier. I just watched an amazing PBS documentary of this amazing nocturnal creature and the research being done to protect it. The animal was chronicled on Wild! It was an amazing episode. Click here for more information about this creature. Or here at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology. You can probably get more information elsewhere, but I thought this might be a fun start for you. What an amazing creature. Big eyes to see at night. A swiveling head (nearly 360!). Frog like fingers. A long tale. Bat like ears. This creature is amazingly diverse in it’s skills. Enjoy this break from all the normal ranting that goes on around here.
