(Your reaction) Thank you!

Tarsiers have very big and scary eyes when they are open and look like Yoda when their eyes are closed. They are a species of monkey that people have had trouble classifying into primate groups. They do have a very mixed up physiology that places them with primates and simians but they even have similarities with the Peruvian guinea pig. So difficult is it to classify them that some scientists feel the group should be split, with some saying they should name three species and others saying that the group should be made up of at least seven subspecies.
