It is our pleasure to inform you that our article about two cases of predation of the Philippine tarsiers recorded during our fieldwork on Bohol Island in years 2009 and 2010 has been published in scientific journal Acta Ethologica.

The first “victim” was a one month old baby tarsier. This situation was even sadder, because our observation was the first observation of development of young Philippine tarsier in the wild. The other predated tarsier was the first female captured on our second study site in Bilar on Bohol Island. She was relatively small therefore we think she might be young. Maybe it was because of her inexperience that she was found in stomach of a monitor lizard after two weeks of observation.
