Artist's notes:

The Aye-Aye was completed on 3.8.2015. There are few animals I've drawn that, even after many hours looking at them, I didn't begin to feel a great love for their beauty and a wonder at their wonderful evolutionary adaptations. Let's just say with the Aye-Aye I mostly felt the latter. This is an animal that is pretty hard to look at. Even the babies are pretty homely. But as I'm putting together a collage of some of the unique and wonderful animals native to the island of Madagascar - which should be done in a couple of weeks.

Information about the Aye-Aye:

The Aye-Aye is a strepsirrhine primate native to Madagascar. It's the world's largest nocturnal primate. It is the is the only extant member of the genus Daubentonia and family Daubentoniidae. This unusual looking animal combines rodent-like teeth and a specialy adapted thin middle finger. It fills a similar ecological niche as the woodpecker. The Aye-Aye is characterized by its unusual method of finding food; it taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood using its forward slanting incisors to create a small hole in which it inserts its narrow middle finger to pull the grubs out. This foraging method is called percussive foraging. The only other animal species known to find food in this way is the striped possum. Due to habitat loss  - as well as the native peoples seeing the animal as a bad omen and symbol for death causing them to kill them out of superstition - the Aye-Aye is classified as endangered.
