The tarsiers look so helpless grabbing onto their chosen branches. While spectators go about snapping pictures of the poor animal, they continue on with their much needed rest. They are nocturnal so their sleep is always being disturbed by tourists who usually come in at day time. That is why it is prohibited to let tourist touch them. No flashes are allowed, so as not to irritate their large eyes. Poor tarsiers!
Having the same problem is the flying lemur or what locals call as kagwang. It is not related to real lemurs but belongs to the colugo family (which only has 2 members). It is also nocturnal. It hunts for prey at night by gliding from one tree top to the other. Here at their new home, they grew accustomed to being petted by people, only giving back an inquisitive glance.
On the other side of the spectrum, the macaques (Macaca fascicularis philippensis) on this wildlife stop are bound with ropes to a bamboo post. Unlike their 2 nocturnal neighbors, they could still be active in the daytime and would readily wander off to escape their sort of boundless prison.
Just imagine the lengths of what these animals would have to go through, just to educate us of their existence. In turn we are only amused with their cuteness and their unique appearances. Probably a number of them would still be hunted down and caged for our delight. More would be left homeless while our rainforests are continuously stripped of their resources. It would not be a good end for these unique Bohol creatures.
