AYE-AYE!

A strange tree creature in Madagascar hunts at night listening for bugs crawling inside the tree trunk. Locating the position of the larvae, the aye-aye chews the spot and then uses an incredibly long finger to extract the bug. Aye-ayes are strange indeed with extraordinary hands equipped with two thumbs! These relatives of lemurs were named by the natives, heh-hehs, or “I don’t know!” Little is known about these amazing creatures.
