  • The unique shape of a tarsier’s spine means that it is capable of rotating its head nearly 360 degrees.
  • Tarsiers are remarkable in having the biggest eyes of any mammal, relative to their body weight.
  • Horsfield’s tarsier is capable of leaping over five metres, which is almost 40 times its own body length.
