Antoine from Belgium drew our attention to this weird little primate: the Tarsier!
The Dutch/Flemish name 'spook-aapje' (or 'spookdiertje') literally means 'small ghost-monkey' (or 'small ghost animal'). Well, while the tarsier is rather cute than horrific, the 'ghost' might refer to the extremely big eyes in such a small animal. Among wikipedia their eyeballs are even as large as their brains!..

Antoine sent the Spook-aapje in this wide landscape on the envelope:

Thanks a lot, dankjewel, Antoine, voor deze mooie bijdrage!
