I chose to write about Aye-Ayes because they are one of the most misunderstood creatures on Earth. The Aye-Ayes scientific name is Daubentonia madagascariensis
1. The Aye-Aye is an endangered species of lemur that only lives in Madagascar. It’s endangered because hunters believe the Aye-Aye is an animal that brings hate, bad luck and misfortune, so they kill them.
2. Baby Aye-Ayes are called infants. They are born with no hair and are 4-5 inches long(roughly the length of a brand new pencil). Infants keep close to their mothers for 7 months and then they slowly gain independence and move away from their mom.
3. Full grown adult Aye-Ayes can hear their prey/food from 330 feet away (roughly the length of 1 football field). Aye-Ayes tap a finger on a branch and listen with their big ears, if there is a bug, they chew with their super strong teeth, then make a hole in the branch. The Aye-Aye has an extremely bendable third finger that sticks in the hole to find the tasty snack that is in the branch.
