Daubentonia madagascariensis…aka: the Aye-Aye

Aye-Aye

Aye-Aye

I started working on this short booklet about cool animals and random facts about them today. Here’s the Aye-Aye, one of the cooler prosimian primates, though I think all of those guys are pretty great.

Even though it is a primate, it has teeth that grow continuously, like a rodent. It uses them to gnaw holes in trees to get at bugs and the such.

Here’s a good website with lots of other cool stuff about them and the other primates.
