Philippine Tarsiers

Now I won't be troubling the Wildlife Photographer of the Year judges with these photos but they remind me of a wonderful day deep in the jungles of Bohol Island in the Philippines. I've always wanted to see a tarsier in the wild. They are the worlds smallest primate (measuring less than six inches long) and are currently vulnerable to extinction. Many are kept in captivity in so called conservation centres but they have almosr no chance of breeding in captivity.

We found this one sleeping high in the canopy after a few hours searching with a local guide.
