You can use whatever you have on hand to make the Tarsier. The most important feature is the EYES! Use a lighter colored, larger circle for the background of the eyes (I used a white chocolate melt, but you can use a banana slice, light-colored cookie, or a circular bread cutout). Use a darker, smaller circle for the pupils (I used a mini Oreo cookie), and be sure to place the pupil directly in the center of the eye.
The eyes should also be the prominent part of the face. I placed my eyes on a muffin (I cut off the top of the muffin to make a flat surface to place the facial features), but you can use a pancake, piece of bread cut out in a circular shape, etc.
I used a piece of bread crust for the nose, and pink conversation hearts for the ears.
- Each eyeball is approximately 16 mm (almost as big as a dime) in diameter and is as large as their entire brain.
- They are primarily insectivorous, and catch insects by jumping at them.
- The tarsier is “arboreal,” spending its entire life in trees.
