Tarsier (Tarsius syrichta) in Bohol in the Philippines.

The Philippine Tarsier is considered the second-smallest primate in the world. It is no larger than a adult man's hand. It is mostly active at night and lives on a diet of insects. The Philippine tarsier is found in the islands of Samar, Leyte, Bohol, and Mindanao in the Philippines. It is an endangered species and might not survive. Although it is now protected by laws, it is threatened by the destruction of its natural forest habitat.

Outside the Philippines, some relatives of the Philippine tarsier can be found in Southeast Asia. The species is believed to be about 45 million years old, dating back to the early Eocene period.
