Spectral Tarsier

The Spectral Tarsier is apparently less specialized than the Philippine Tarsier or Horsfield's Tarsier; for example, it lacks adhesive toes. It is the type species for the Tarsius genus. It is found in Indonesia, primarily in the lowlands of Sulawesi and on Selayar Island.

The Spectral Tarsier has the largest eye to body size ratio of all of the mammals.

Weighs about 80-100 grams and has a body length of 16cm and a tail length of 23cm. They can live up to 12 years. Males are bigger then females.

Spectral Tarsiers are the only totally canivorous primates. They have remained largely unchanged for 40 million years.
