The tarsier, one of the smallest primates in the world, weighs only about 100 grams and can fit into the palm of a person's hand.

Environmentalists worry that the species, which is only found in southeast Asian islands including in the Philippines, could soon face extinction because of increased development and a recent boom in tourism in the region.

It is estimated there are only a few hundred tarsiers left in the wild.
