Philippine Tarsier

Adorable rainforest creature, female holding onto a branch with a baby clinging on it's back. Night time rainforest scene, realistic digital painting for childrens natural history publishing

Wildlife painting of an adult female with baby. The Carlito syrichta is mostly active at night and is one of the smallest known primates, no larger than a man's hand. The tarsier is now under protection with some conservation initiatives in place because of it's past Near Threatened status, due to the rapid destruction of it's natural rainforest habitat and harvesting for the pet trade. Their lives are dramatically shortened if captured and kept as pets, partly due to their solitary and nocturnal nature.
