One of the things I was excited about when WithLocals sent me to Bohol Philippines is that, the opportunity to finally meet this cute and strange creature in Bohol that we all know as the Tarsier. I’ve been to Bohol before this, when I was still little but as far as I remember we were not able to go to the Tarsiers. But I was able to meet the monkey at the Chocolate Hills before.
I was picked up by the WithLocals host that I verified on that day, and his name is Nelson. He has his own mini-van, and along with his wife they tour me around Bohol for only $40.82 per person for the whole day tour. And one of the destinations that are included is going to the Tarsier Permittee Corp. where the Tarsiers are protected.
As you enter the place, you'll be able to see this.
I didn't noticed him at first since I didn't get it why the kids was really happy and look fond of looking at the brown big leaf - I was like, "you've never seen a big brown leaf kid?". But yeah, I was wrong, there's the little guy. Guess I need some glasses or they're that tiny.
Since there are these Korean family looking at the little guy above, the guide waved at me and point to another leaf. So I followed the guide and tadah!
I really find this one so cute, he's shy - not sure if it is a he or she here!
Let's zoom in again and see how cute and shy he is.
I saw him looking at me and I was like "ohhh...."
Didn't spend much time there, I was just there for about 20 minutes and we walked down to exit the area but I really love the place. Look!
I feel like I'm Tarzan - or should I be Jane?
You'll exit to somewhat an area where you can buy these.
Sorry if it's blurry because it's a bit dark and I was walking taking the photo. But yeah, they're souvenirs. They're not real tarsiers okay? There are bags, figurines, and a lot more.
And look! Just found the love of my life!
Though it was just for a short period of time, it was fun and a great feeling to finally meet these little guys. But then you must respect them and think of their safety.
