Tarsier - The "Big Eye" Specie



Locally known as “mawmag” by Cebuanos, particularly on the islands of Bohol, Samar, and Leyte. The Philippine tarsier is very atypical small animal. In fact, it belongs to the one of the smallest known primates, not longer than an adult hand. It is highly active at night and is surrounded by insects. There has been a misconception of the tarsiers, it is often heard in a slogan as “World Smallest Monkey”, however it is not. Well obviously the feature itself defines. 

This has become one of the tourist visiting attractions in Chocolate Hills.
