Characteristics :

The Aye-Aye [eye eye] is a multicellular mamal born with brown or black fur. Although their ears look like leather, they
are actualy very delacite and thin. The female Ae-Ayes are pregnant for 6 months and reproduce every three to four years.
The Aye-Aye is also one of the endangered species and is close to being whiped out.

The Aye-Aye is like most typical land creatures and breath air through their lungs. The Aye-Aye lives on the east coast of madascar in the rain forest and nests in their twig nest. Aye-Ayes eat fruit, eggs, bamboo shoots, but mainly they eat grubs and bugs they find in trees. The Aye-Aye is unlike humans and can't get water from a machine or tap to clench their thirst, so they must scatter for water. They mostly find their water in lakes, rivers, puddles or ponds, but it isn't hard to find looking at where they live. In the rain forest, the ammount of water could last an aye aye for many years.


Classifacation :

Aye-Ayes are closly related to lemurs. This means they are something called a "Primate." Although you can't see it in the Aye-Aye apearance, the relation is at a great number.

Kingdom:
Anamalia
Phylum:
Chordata
Class:
Mammalia
Order:
Primates
Family:
Daubentoniidae
Genus:
Daubentonia

Physical Adaptations :

The Aye-Aye is born with very little fur, but as it grows older it grows more fur which will turn grey then eventually be lost
(much like humans.) Aye-Ayes are born with small hands but after a while their third finger grows up to six inches long. New
born Aye-Ayes are born at about ten to twenty centimeters long, but grow to be up to fourty centimeters (without the tail.)

Behavioral Adaptations :

Aye-Ayes are "nocternal" which means they stay up at night and sleep most of the day. Some animals are nocternal
because of an instinct, but most nocternal animals are nocternal because their prey are easier to catch at night. Aye-Ayes
are "arboreal." This means that they live in the treetops, and they are also "solitary" which means they live alone. During mating
season, male Aye-Ayes are very aggressive and will rip a male of the female while they are mating and he will start to mate with
her. This means you can have around two to three males fighting over one female while mating with her at the same time.
