The Tarsius Monkey

The Tarsius Monkey is the smallest primate on the planet. Measuring just 5 inches, it is basically the size of a mouse. Found only in Indonesian jungles, they are totally nocturnal, and will not leave their nest until it is pitch black outside. Yoda's face from Star Wars was modeled after the Tarsius Monkey.
