    —Size, Weight, and Lifespan—
    ‚ÄčAs one of the smallest primates on earth, their body is only about 4.5 to 5 inches (11–13 cm) in length on average, with a tail about double that length. They weigh between 4 and 5 oz (110–130 g). Tarsiers are shorter-lived than many other primates. One Philippine tarsier lived to 13 years of age in captivity, and lifespan in the wild is likely shorter than this.

    Philippine tarsiers don't often move quadrupedally. Instead, they tend to cling vertically to trees, using their tail for support, and can usually be found leaping about the rainforest. They can leap 20 feet (6 meters) at a time—pretty amazing for such a small animal!
