You be the judge…

“Scientists” tell us that the tarsier is the only member of its lonely family Tarsiidae, which itself is the lone extant family within the infraorder Tarsiiformes… We here at Zooillogix think they might be more closely related to other species than zoologists think…

    Tarsiidae is a family, not a genus. The problem of recognizing homology vs convergent evolution is perplexing and often difficult. I don’t know what to tell you.

    I second Jim’s point. Any classification methodology that includes Gilbert Gottfried in any other taxon is basically flawed.

    That’s it! The pygmy tarsier is a gashta!!! (Me = huge H. Beam Piper geek girl)

    With those eyes and long fingers, he looks kind of like a C. Montgomery Burns in its larval stage.

    Good luck finding a picture for that!

    I can’t believe I’m not the only one still obsessed with fuzzies. I even bought copies of the books for my kids…for some reason they just don’t get it.
