Spectral tarsier

Tarsius tarsier

The spectral tarsier is a species of tarsier found in Indonesia. It is apparently less specialized than the Philippine tarsier or Horsfield's tarsier; for example, it lacks adhesive toes. It is the type species for the ''Tarsius'' genus. While its range used to include both the population on the island of Selayar as well as on nearby southwestern Sulawesi, the latter populations has been removed to a separate species, ''Tarsius fuscus''.

This species weighs about 80–100 grams and has a body length of 16 cm and a tail length of 23 cm. They can live up to 12 years. Males are bigger than females.
