Tarsiers have elongated tarsus bones in their hind limbs, which is where the species name originates.  Their long hind legs are about twice as long as their body length, allowing them to jump as high as 5 feet and as far as 20.  This ability has allowed them to be well adapted for living a mostly arboreal life.
