This post starts with a 4am wake up that turned out not to be worth it. However, the short hike following it was worth it. It was my first encounter with a Tarsier. A tarsier is a small, fuzzy and nocturnal creature with big round eyes. Sadly, due to human activity, namely hunting, they are endangered.
They can only be found in Indonesia and the Phillipines. We saw three of them (mum, dad, baby) living in a strangling figs. They only live in strangling fig trees for some reason, and nowhere else. In other words, they are cute but rare.
