Exploring Bohol: Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary

Our next stop from Loboc Eco Adventure Park was the Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary located at Barangay Canapnapan, Corella, Bohol.

The Philippine tarsier, (Tarsius syrichta) are small and the most famous features of these creatures are their eyes which are bulging and are bigger than the entire brain. 
really cute
They can rotate their head, at approximately 180 degrees. They are nocturnal animals and hunt insects like crickets for food. 

The Philippine tarsier is an endangered species however, there are organizations in Bohol like Philippine Tarsier Foundation Inc. which establish and maintain guest services for eco-tourism and distribute information materials about the Philippine tarsier with importance on the species’ protection and conservation.
