Population density was counted by strip transect and charactersistic spatial used quadrat method and than to looking behavior out and in sleeping tree will using descriptive analysis. Result showed that tarsius live in groups with 2-8 individuals per group . Tarsius tarsier population density estimates obtained 270 ind / km ² or 2.7 ind / ha and abundance reached 1660 tarsiers were found on the area of ​​Batuputih Nature Park Tangkoko. Spatial Characteristics the average sleeping tree of tarsier are tree species associated with plants rope (Liana), including the type of Spathodea campanulata, Ailanthus integrifolia, Kleinhovia hospital, Alstonia scholaris, Garuga floribunda, Ficus tinctoria and Ficus variegata.
