My Favourite Animal's Commit Suicide!

If Tarsiers become unhappy they commit suicide by banging their heads on something hard like cage sides or tree's.They don't like being bred in captivity.
They are tiny in height at 90 to 160 mm (3.5 to 6.25 inches) They are still found in parts of the Philippines and parts of Indonesia. However they used to be all over the South East Asian Islands. It has been estimated that there are between 5,000 and 10,000 of them left in the world.

It is said that Yoda from star wars was created with Tarsiers in mind, you can see the resemblance actually! although Yoda is much bigger than these cuties.

If i ever get rich I'm going to visit the Philippines just so I can see these monkeys with my own eyes i love them so much.

Below you can see photo's of the Tarsiers, Yoda and a little film featuring a real life Tarsier!


  1. OMG that is insane. I never would have thought that those cute lil monkeys would be suicidal.

  2. AWWWWWWWWW how cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! their eyes are fantastic!!

  3. I know the poor little things! I think it is their eyes that make them so cute, i want one so bad.
