    "The Tarsier has a wide variety of facial expressions ranging from 'demented firby trying to take a cute selfie' to 'terrified witness to Lovecraftian level horrors that just can't look away.'"

    The tarsier's name in Finnish is "kummituseläin", which literally means "ghost animal". I wonder why...

    • Maître
      Maître 7 months ago

      This might be a rough answer but they might be called little ghost animal and ghost animal in different languages because of the fact that primates and monkey's are religiously looked at as ghosts sometimes. I just learned this in my Anty class but a lot of cultures believe that Monkeys such as tarsiers, chimpanzees, bonobos, etc. are actually dead ancestoral ghosts from the past.

      the woke pinoy 10 months ago

      @Magic Hands what about kakapo? That's what I mean tho, because the animal is native to the country, the locals have a name for it. But in your country, you wouldnt have a word for a kakapo in your language. So it doesnt make sense that you think " it doesnt need to exist there" to have a word for it in your language. Why would your country have a word in your language for kakapo? Hence why im surprised why Finnish people have their own word for tarsier

    • Magic Hands
      Magic Hands 10 months ago

      @the woke pinoy We don't, but that's maybe because the word is maori and they didn't want to change it. We do have different words for platypus and emu though, even though the word for emu is almost exactly the same.

    In my primatology class, the professor linked to the tarsier video in our lecture about tarsiers, saying “take a look at this TheXvid, which is a) a fantastic overview of tarsier characteristics, and b) just really funny and entertaining, and it’s probably more effective than you learning the material I’m about to present in the next seven slides”. Fun class. Zefrank, if you are reading this, take comfort in knowing that well respected tenured university professors consider your videos more educational than a 3-credit college course required for anthropology majors.

    Apparently these things inspired the creation of Mogwai in gremlins XD (more specifically, the pygmy tarsier)
    I don't know if it's true or not but no one can disagree that these two have a lot in common.
    Funny enough, gremlins actually came from ww2. There were several eyewitness accounts of strange creatures that could ride on the outside of, and messed with, war planes. There were all kinds of descriptions of these creatures that ranged from human like to more animalistic. They could be mischievous, down right malicious, and sometimes benevolent.

    (we just learned this in class so I possibly know , just based on our teacher) The tarsier's commit suicide if they are strresed , getting flash by the camera , in noisy places , and they hear very loud voices. so if tourists vist bohol (a place in the Philippines where tarsiers are commonly found) they seriously have to be quiet

    I think his old videos, before he came back from buzzfeed, really capture what I found so funny about them. His new ones are good, but, it feels like they try too hard to be funny and that he's trying to hold in laughs.
    His old videos are more educational and relied more on the delivery of dry humor than implying that something is supposed to be funny with a forced chuckle.

    The tarsier is actually suicidal and will bump its head on the wood, not eat for days, not breathe if they hear any loud noises. And tarsiers
    are very territorial and one tarsier requires 100 acres of land.

    I never heard of it being called a Tarsi-eh (Tarsier) here in the Philippinesss...
    We call these cuties Tar-sheers (Tarsier) here in our country... 😅
    I was suprised it was called "tarsi-eh" in this vid.... 😅

    LIZARD HAS A SHITTY DAY - by Kill Dozer
    Lizard has a shitty day,
    Gobbled up by Tarsier.
    Lizard has a shitty week,
    Head got stuck in Eagle's beak.
    Lizard has a shitty month,
    Got mixed up in Tiger's lunch.
    Lizard has a shitty year,
    Used to clean Gorilla's ear.
    Lizard has a shitty life,
    beaten up by estranged wife.
    Lizard has a shitty death,
    Could not know Rhino was deaf.
    So please remember Lizard's plight,
    should you think your day is shite.

    You missed this: tarsiers kill themselves when they are stressed, and they are extremely easy to stress with noise, keeping them captive and touching them.
