Aye-ayes are lemurs, native to Madagascar. They grow to about three feet long as adults, with tails as long as their bodies. They spend the bulk of their lives in trees, high in their canopies, and use their fingers to extract insects from the bark. They also eat seeds and fruits.
The cute critters are considered endangered, due to poaching, habitat loss, and death at the hands of farmers trying to safeguard their crops. Not helping matters is that the animal is thought by local populations to be evil.
