Aside from the Chocolate Hills, Bohol is also famous for it houses the endangered species, the Tarsier.
Tarsiers are haplorrhine primates of the genus Tarsius, a genus in the family Tarsiidae, which is itself the lone extant family within the infraorderTarsiiformes. Although the group was once more widespread, all the species living today are found in the islands of Southeast Asia. To know more, check -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarsier
There are 7 Tarsier house in Kanipa.
They look so fragile, while sleeping. This small creatures are nocturnal in nature, but some are awake during our visit. Maybe because we disturbed them, we also saw them jump from another tree branch.
You are not allowed to touch the Tarsier, but I did! Hahaha! Pasaway tlga, I just want to know the feeling, i just stick my finger to feel it's body, NO harm done! I swear! So basically, they are puffy because of their thick hair.
The caretaker shares to us that there have been an attempt to study the Tarsier but they die when brought outside of Bohol. These creatures also have suicidal tendencies. And they respond to sound, like the caretaker claps her hand to gear the head of the Tarsier towards us. Amazing creatures! :)
STRICTLY NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY, since they are nocturnal in nature, their eyes are sensitive to light.
To complete your Bohol experience, pay them a visit. Oh and there are NO fixed amount of entrance fee, just a donation from your heart. :)
