The Philippine Tarsier was completed on 3.6.2016. I knew about these amazing animals for some time, but hadn't seriously considered drawing one - until I decided to create a collage of animals of the Philippines. This is one of the more remarkable mammals on the archipelago. I had to place the tail in a somewhat unnatural position so the entire body of the animal would fit in the space.

It is found in the southeastern part of the archipelago, particularly on the islands of Bohol, Samar, Leyte and Mindanao. The Philippine tarsier measures only about 3.35 to 6.30 inches (85 to 160 mm) in height, making it one of the smallest primates. habitat is the second-growth, secondary forest, and primary forest from sea level to 700 m (2,300 ft). Its habitat also includes tropical rainforest with dense vegetation and trees that offer it protection such as tall grasses, bushes, and bamboo shoots.
