  1. Tarsier, one of the smallest mammals in the world. Endemic to some islands in the Philippines. Posted 6 years ago
  2. Normally we disallow people on photos here, but we'll make an exception this time as the species are clearly taking center stage, and is too interesting to ignore. Posted 6 years ago

The Philippine tarsier , known locally as ''mawmag'' in Cebuano/Visayan and ''mamag'' in Luzon, is a species of tarsier endemic to the Philippines. It is found in the southeastern part of the archipelago, particularly on the islands of Bohol, Samar, Leyte and Mindanao. It is a member of the approximately 45-thousand-year-old family Tarsiidae, whose name is derived from its elongated "tarsus" or ankle bone. It is the only member of the genus ''Carlito'', after the species was removed from the genus.. more
