Do you know what a tarsier is?
The tarsier looks familiar because it belongs to the family of monkeys. It is a small animal (about 5 inches in height) with really big eyes. Those big eyes are actually the first ones you'll notice when you look at it. Tarsiers can only be found in Southeast Asia, including the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia. But fossils or the preserved dead bodies of tarsiers found by scientists in Europe, North America and other places in Asia prove that this type of animal used to exist in those places before.
More fascinating information and amazing pictures of tarsiers are featured in this book especially made for young learners.
