Caption: Finger bones of the aye-aye. The aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) is a lemur from Madagascar. Its main food is beetle larvae. The aye-aye taps on tree bark, until it hears a hollow sound with its enlarged ears. It then bites through the bark and wood to locate the larvae. It uses its extended and slender middle finger to extract larvae from the interior. The aye-aye is now extremely rare, due to the destruction of its forest home, and is on the verge of extinction.
