    The remarkable animal shares many similarities with the diminutive character from the legendary sci-fi film series.

    As he was trekking through the jungle in the Philippines, photographer Erik Mikhailov noticed the strange creature clinging to a nearby branch.

    The animal - which is actually a Tarsier - immediately made sci-fi fan Erik think of one of his favourite Jedi characters from Star Wars.

    It's not clear whether the animal used the Force to get into the tree but Erik decided the photo opportunity was too good to miss.

    He said: 'I was walking through the jungle and then suddenly spied this little guy staring back at me, I'm a bit of a geek, and I thought "hey, he looks just like Yoda".

    'At the time I didn't actually know what the creature was, we were deep in the rainforest and there was so much amazing wildlife to see.'

    So cute. :love:

    Erm... You wouldn't say that when you see how it eats! It just bites its prey's head off and it's gruesome to watch (or maybe it's just me lol)

    Oh yeah actually I recall seeing a video where it was eating worms or something and it was pretty grim. Its OK I would feed it sweets.

    Yoda...it isn't green. It doesn't seem to be affecting everything near it with the force.

    If it was the real Yoda the photographer would have wandered away going "This isn't the Yoda I'm looking for".
