Thanks for that Stephen. I hope their numbers are holding up in general. I suppose 'development' is their main enemy.

None of my spottings are taken in Zoos. I found the Tarsier whilst spotlighting on a night walk in Sepilok. They're normally around eye level in height from the ground which is great for photography. As long as you hold a light on a Tarsier they'll normally stay in the same place until you take the light away.

congratulations Stephen.... I love just its fingers and toes, as well as the eyes, of course! And those ears aren't too bad either! They look like mother-of-pearl shells!
