The aye aye is one of the most unusual creatures and is native to madagascar. It has one extrmely long finger that it uses to tap against trees whilst listening closely to hear if the tree is hollow if it is it will hear any movement inside and then poke its finger in and skewer its meal – hopefully a big fat juicy grub!
Thanks for looking and any comments

Creativity has been a driving force in my life & photography is the best way I have found to express this. Nothing beats the feeling of coming home after a day out with the camera with a full card & hours of editing ahead!
My favourite subjects are animals, scenic views & children. I have photographed over 50 weddings to date & am available for these or any other events.

    I agree with Derid, great expression and I love his shaggy fur. I’m sure I’m one of the only people who would say this, but I actually think aye-ayes are pretty cute. Really nice capture. :)

    Almost human. More human than some humans I’ve met, actually.
