Tarsiers! / by Kenneth Kao

TARSIERS! These are some of the most ancient primates alive, and very endangered.

They are super cute and sensitive. You can't scare them, or take pictures with flash because they'll go into spasms and die. It's crazy. This was taken in a preserve, where they had 6 tarsiers living.

Every morning, the staff would have to go and figure out where these nocturnal creatures had wandered off to in order to show tourists that day. Sometimes they'd only find one or two, and it could take several hours.

This was taken in Bohol, Philippines. It was one of my photographic bucket list animals. And yes, he's mid-winking.
