THE TARSIER
by fdaray
 
 This animal regarded  as  the smallest monkey is the identity  of Corella,
 the samllest town of Bohol. How's  The Tarsier Foundation in Canapnapan?
 I know that they are very successfull in breeding  these rare animal. Some
 tarsiers escaped from the foundation. I caught one in our place but I throw
 it back to the forest because its very hard to raise.

 According to the study of sceintists, the Philippine tarseir is a primate.Some
 people  regarded it as monkey. Our native folks called it "maumag".

 Corella Bohol, the smallest town , the home of the smallest primates in the
 world.

The Philippine Tarsier
IJsselstein, Saturday, 24 April 2004 02:23:48

The Philippine tarsier, (Tarsius syrichta) is very peculiar small animal. In fact it is one of the smallest known primates, no larger than a adult men's hand. Mostly active at night, it lives on a diet of insects. Folk traditions sometimes has it that tarsiers eat charcoal, but actually they retrieve the insects from (sometimes burned) wood. It can be found in the islands of Samar, Leyte, Bohol, and Mindanao in the Philippines.

If no action is taken, the tarsier might not survive. Although it is a protected species, and the practice of catching them and then selling them as stuffed tarsiers to tourists has stopped, the species is still threatened by the destruction of his natural forest habitat. Many years of both legal and illegal logging and slash-and-burn agriculture have greatly reduced these forests, and reduced the tarsier population to a dangerously small size. If no action is taken now, the Philippine tarsier can soon be added to the list of extinct species.

Not "The World Smallest Monkey"
 
Tarsier Clock, USD 13.99. "The world's smallest monkey" is an often heard slogan. However, it is not a monkey. In truth, its classification is somewhat problematic. Some scientists consider tarsiers to be a taxonomic suborder among the primates. While, because they are closely related to lemurs, lorises and bushbabies, others classify them with the prosimians to which these animals belong. Monkeys and apes belong to the suborder of anthropoids. The complete taxonomic classification thus is:

Sir Felix, last week - I believe that was Holy Thursday, in our public tv channel here, our very own Tarsiers were featured.  The documentary showed the Sanctuary in Sikatuna and Corella was also mentioned always.  The guy who ran the sanctuary was a certain Carlitos Pizzaras.  He was such a nice fellow.  Nice kaayo makadungog ug pure Bol-anon na sinultian sa tv.   :D

Carlito Pizarras was the first man of Corella recorded in the National GEographic.
He is was the first who successfully bread the tarsiers in captivity. He is incharge
of the Tarsier Foundation.

We are proud of him.
