Welcome to the world of the tarsier! Many readers may never have heard of this nocturnal creature. As an arboreal animal, the tarsier spends its time in the forests of Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, and the Philippines. A chapter on the tarsier's body discusses its appearance, tiny size, and special features, such as its enormous eyes, long ankle bones, or tarsals, and ability to turn its around head like an owl. Other chapters cover its habitat, including a map, its life cycle, and its diet. In fact, the tarsier's diet of only live animals has earned it the nickname "world's most carnivorous primate"! Predators, including humans, are also introduced, along with threats to the tarsier's environment, such as deforestation and hunting, and conservation efforts that are in place to protect these endangered species. Full-color photographs will draw in the reader while showing off the tarsier's unique characteristics. Glossary words in bold, phonetic spellings, and an index supplement this easy-to-read text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
