Really nice little creatures that are so quiet and sweet. You have to be quiet and don't touch them because they are getting stressed and they commit suicide by hitting their heads on the trees. So sad story though....

We were so happy that we got to see the Tarsier up close. It was so hard for my parents (senior citizens both in the 70's) and my baby niece to climb up the rugged stairs. It was also drizzling at the time we went.

It's really too bad they're endangered. They'd make the cutest little pets, but gotta respect nature.

It was a small "rain forest", guides lead you to the places to find the tarsiers; it's however not the attraction it should be

If you like small creatures that look cute and don't do very much this is worth a look. An interesting account of how the creatures arrived at the island is available for those with a little more interest than taking photos.
