A Date with Tarsiers!

My family just adored these small creatures.  They are so cute and small!  They look like stuff toys.

The Philippine tarsier is one of the smallest primates  know to man 
(It is in fact, no bigger than the size of an adult fist).
They eat insects for food and is more active at night, which goes to explain why this one here, was sleeping when we got there.

My son's first Tarsier encounter!

My husband and eldest son, goofing around.
