Strangest Creature Created By God. Check Out The Animal That Commits Suicide When Stressed

Animals, like humans, are thought to suffer from mental health disorders. Animals are capable of experiencing stress and developing depression. These are variables that can either induce or contribute to human suicide. Additionally, we know that many behaviors that were formerly thought to be unique to humans have been observed in other animals. Suicide, on the other hand, is one of them. Are animals actually suicidal and conscious of their actions? To that purpose, the yes response to this question is given. When under duress, only one species actually commits suicide or self-destruction.

Tarsiers are haplorhine primates of the family Tarsiidae. As a result, they have a monkey-like appearance but have a dry nose. They are the offspring of lemurs and monkeys. Tarsiers are one of the world's smallest primates, found in the forests of Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, and the Philippines. The size of these primates is comparable to that of a squirrel. However, tarsiers have the largest eyes of any mammal in relation to their body size. Each eyeball is around 16 millimeters in diameter, the same size as a tarsier's entire brain. Each eyeball measures approximately the same size as the brain. Consider the size of our eyes if we possessed the tarsier's eye-to-body ratio. Due to their small

stature, they are unable to rotate their eyes. Rather than that, tarsiers, like owls, have the ability to rotate their necks 180 degrees in either direction.

Not only that, tarsiers lack eyelids and hence are unable to close their eyes. Surprisingly, they wipe their eyes with their tongues. They are nocturnal creatures by nature ( active at night and sleep during the day). These creatures prefer dense, gloomy foliage. They are the world's only carnivorous primates, eating exclusively meat (insects).

They are incredibly delicate and sensitive creatures that succumb to stress very quickly. When they become too agitated, they begin beating their little heads against anything solid, such as a tree, and eventually commit suicide. Tarsiers are so incapable of domestication and perform poorly in captivity.
