THE PELILE’AN WATCHING

The pelile’an watching in Peramun Geosite is purposed to observe the pelile’an at the natural habitat. This animal will look for the insects for their feeding after sunset. The world’s smallest primate exists since end of Cretaceous era (56 million years) and as a part of animal migrations during the last ice glacier period in Sundaland (Pleistocene). Pelile’an is a Tarsiidae family that can only be found in south east asia such as Southern Sumatra, Bangka, Belitong, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and South Philipines

The morphology of Belitong Tarsiers highlight no dense hair, gray colour background, and no vocal duets in the morning (Shekell, 2008; Groves and Shekelle, 2010; Fodgen, 1974; Yustian, 2007). The molecular analysis have proved that they were classified as the Cephalopachus genera. This has changed from the previous authors which were categorized into Tarsius genera.

The Belitong Tarsiers inhabit in the dry and shrub land and the secondary dry land. Those area are the habitat for the insects which are the main feeding for the Belitong Tarsiers (Fitriana et al, 2016).
