The Pygmy Tarsier is also sometimes referred to as the Mountain Tarsier or the Lesser Spectral Tarsier. It is a very unique variety of nocturnal primate found on central Sulawesi, Indonesia, in an area with lower vegetative species diversity than the lowland tropical forests.
Pygmy Tarsier Description:
The Pygmy Tarsier has a head-body length of 95 to 105 mm. and on top of that it has very distinct morphological features, a body length which is smaller than other tarsier species, and a small body weight.
It also has tiny ears compared to the rest of the gang and its coat is tan or buff, with predominant grey or brownish red coloring.
The tail is the part I like the most. In this case it is heavily haired, and the size of the tail can range anything from 135 to 275 mm.
However, the most noticeable feature of T. pumilus are its huge orange like eyes, which are usually 16 mm in diameter. The Pygmy Tarsier has nails on all five toes, and on two fingers of the foot. These nails are similar to claws, but it would be a mistake to consider the same as them. The clawlike nails aid in their grasping strength and are also used as a tool in their requirement for large vertical support for feeding and movement.
