Look into my eyes

Family: Tarsiidae
Habitat: Islands in South-East Asia

Tarsiers have the biggest eyes of all mammals compared to their body size. That’s not surprising with those massive peepers! The tarsier needs them to see its prey at night: butterflies, cicadas, termites etc. Tarsiers are the only primates that only eat meat. Their eyes are even bigger than their brains. Just like the ostrich.
