Meet the tarsier in Bohol

The tarsier is so small it could fit in your palm or sit on your finger. Freaky or cute is up to you to decide. I think it is a little of both. This gremlin (and Yoda) lookalike resides only in South east Asia.

There are not many tarsiers left in the world, which is why habitats like the Tarsier Research and Development Center in Bohol, where you can meet tarsiers in the wild, are necessary for the future existence of the tarsier.

How to get here

When visiting Bohol in the Philippines, the Tarsier Research and Development Center is a common tourist stop and it is on the way to Chocolate Hills. All tarsiers are wild here, and are well taken care of to ensure a future of tarsiers, as they would go extinct without this kind of habitats. There is no touching the animals and no flash allowed with your camera.Tarsier in Bohol, Philippines

The tarsier is a primate, like humans, and related to monkeys. When you start walking around in the enclosed area, at first you don’t see them, and then you see them everywhere. Most likely napping. It is a real cuteness overload spot!

Where to stay

Most people stay at the island Panglao which is connected to Bohol island, and close to the airport. And in Panglao, the most common place is called Alona Beach. It has quite a few dive shops, hotels and restaurants. Check out accommodation alternatives here.
