Although there are some films of us on You Tube and other media's where a person is holding one of my relatives or playing with us, we have decided not to show these on this site as it is now illegal to handle or frighten us in anyway. Therefore we will not encourage this.
Films from other social media and cllips on the Internet
Some people believe that Magwai from Gremlins is based on the Tarsier.........
Not so, Email from Dreamworks:
We received your letter asking if Steven Spielberg used the Tarsier to form the Magwai character in Gremlins. I’m sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. It took some time to track down the answer. I talked to the filmmakers and there is no connection between the two. I hope that clears it up.
