Animal update 

In my post about the amazing aye-aye, I neglected to include any info about the critter except my newly found passion for him/her and a striking photo. Let me rectify...

The Wikipedia says:

The Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) is a primate native to Madagascar that combines rodent-like teeth with a long, thin middle finger to fill the ecological niche of a woodpecker. It is the world's largest nocturnal primate, and is characterized by its unique method of finding food; it taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood and inserts its elongated middle finger to pull the grubs out.
