My new favorite primate is the tarsier!

Today is a random day. My newest craft project is going nowhere, I have work in a few hours, and I don't feel like pursuing any subject matter in depth. So, I was watching PBS, and luckily found a documentary on the cute tarsier. They live in the Philippines and are nocturnal animals. They're just creepy enough for me to find adorable. And, according to the tarsier hunter and conservationist on the show, when they die, they have little funerals for the dead and bury them under rocks. So, people never see dead tarsiers in the forest.

While I'm on the subject of animals, here's a picture of a tree frog I took on campus. Both the tree frog and the tarsier have cute little sticky-pad feet!
