Tarcier Sanctuary

 Philippine's tarsiers live on several islands of the Philippines. A very small monkey can be seen on the islands of Bohol, Leyte and Mindanao, as well as on the islands of Indonesia - Borneo, Sumatra and Sulawesi. Tarsiers look like a mini-monkey (size of a human palm with a long tail). Someone likes them and thinks to be cute and funny, while for others they remind rats.

 The sanctuary is a fenced forest area, which is their natural habitat. At night, they are active, descend from the trees in order to get insects for food.

 Tarsiers are hard to tame and it is difficult for them to live in captivity, so the workers of the sanctuary do not even feed them. These animals sleep during the day, occasionally waking up because of the noise made by tourists.
There are 10 tarsiers living in the sanctuary- 8 females and 2 males. They “protect” their territory, so that no new tarsiers may live with them. Tarsiers live long enough for their size - the average life is 22 years.

Also, on the big stands you can read about the history of the creation of this sanctuary and about the life of the tarsiers.
All in all, this place is definitely worth visiting, if you are in Bohol.
