That’s right, a Tarsier! This adorable primate lives in south-east Asia. These animals are nocturnal which is why they have their characteristic large eyes. The International Union for Conservation of Nature has labelled these animals as a ‘conservation-dependent species’ because these animals rely on conservation  to avoid extinction.
