      Thank you for posting these photographs from the Philippines. We visited because my girlfriend wanted to see a tarsier but I didn't take any photographs and I generally don't visit such collections any more.

      I saw this animal too and I'm sure its not Ailurops ursinus. I suspect it's a member of Strigocuscus possibly a Sulawesi dwarf cuscus, but I'm certainly no expert. That's what I thought at the time of my visit, what do you think?

      Did you visit Davao?

      Hi! Thank you very much for the right identification of this cuscus. I don't have any literature about cucuses and just trusted web where I found I a lot of pictures of this cuscus called bear cuscus. Now I check again, and I see a completely different animal. Very strange. But you're right, of course. No, I have not been to Davao. As for tarsier, there are no longer in captivity tarsiers on Bohol except one place - Tarsier project.
