Species: Tropical Tarsier
Birthday: Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Out of the side of this egg you can see a tuft of bright orange fur. It is rather soft to the touch.
Originating from the jungle far to the east, tarsiers make for very clever companions. They are always alert and aware of their location, and listen carefully to all that goes on around them. Many have speculated that if only they could know of the tarsiers inner thoughts, many secrets and mysteries would be solved. However, these tiny primates guard their knowledge and share it only with the most trusted of humans: their companions. Perched on a shoulder or hidden away in a pocket, they go mostly undetected by all, but are more than content with this. When bored, they drift off to sleep, and the occasional snack will keep them very happy. Their diet consists of insects and small mammals, and they eat no vegetation or fruit at all. In the wild, they make their homes high in the tree tops, but in The Keep are pleased with creating nests under beds or in closets. Their babies do not remain in the nest for any time at all, but venture forth at once with their mothers. The females of this species do not possess the bright orange markings of the male, but are more loving and protective.
