The Tarsier is the unofficial mascot of Bohol, and everywhere on the island is tarsier-themed. These cute little tree huggers are a huge tourist draw to Bohol Island, but very easy to miss.
Tarsiers are furry little fuckers that look like weird rats. They’re only 6-8 inches (15-20cm) from head to tail and have disproportionately large eyes. These adorable handheld nocturnal primates look super innocent, and something you’d want to keep as a pet, but these nocturnal hunters munch on insects throughout the night and are mostly sleeping during the days.
The Tarsier Sanctuary is home to a few hundred (estimated) Tarsiers; however, you will (likely) see only a handful of these cute little things just chilling on a tree branch, watching crazy tourists take pictures of them.
