Tarsier is the smallest monkeys in the world, and it can be found in Bohol, Philippines. These monkeys are so little with big eyes. Their eyes are so sensitive to the light, even the flash of the camera can harm them. We were warned to turn off the flash of the camera as it might cause blindness to them.

A trek through the sanctuary will reward travelers with a glimpse of these quirky animals without disturbing them, thanks to expert tarsier spotters who know their habits.
 
By day, they’ll likely be lazing around in the trees, resting after an active night of hunting.
Tarsiers spend all night leaping through the trees, up 10 to 15 feet at a time, to hunt live prey such as crickets, small birds, beetles, lizards and frogs.
The animal’s oversized eyes are actually larger than both its brain and stomach, which accounts for its owl-like behavior.
“Because of their huge eyeballs, tarsiers can’t move their eyes around, so instead they move their neck,”

Tarsier Conservation Area vs. Tarsier Sanctuary

We choose Tarsier Conservation Area since we are already at the Loboc area. If you are going to eat lunch at the floating restaurant in Loboc. Tarsier Conservation Area is not far from there, vs. going to Tarsier Sanctuary, it will be in another town.
