Tarsiers are primates (a group including lemurs, monkeys, apes and humans) found only in the islands of Southeast Asia. They usually eat insects. Tarsiers are small with very large eyes, elongated hind legs and feet, a thin tail and long fingers. They are nocturnal (active at night) although some species may move around in the daytime. The majority of Tarsier species are now endangered or threatened, and some are designated critically endangered because of human intervention
