Two photos of Siau Island tarsier (Tarsius tumpara) in captivity I took during my last trip to Siau:

This animal is on the top 25 most endangered primates list. It is critically endangered (A1 acd) and faces an imminent threat of extinction. I was shocked to find one in a cage behind a house of some guy on Siau island. This animal is one of only about 1000 still alive!
