The aye-aye ("eye-eye") looks like a weird little gremlin. Some people have said that it looks like Dobby from the Harry Potter movies.
What is even stranger is that you are related to an aye-aye! Just like humans, apes and monkeys, an aye-aye is a member of the primate family.
The aye-aye lives in Madagascar, a large island off the south east coast of Africa.
Aye-ayes live in trees. They sleep all day and stay awake at night. Their big bright eyes help them see in the dark.
Aye-ayes have very odd hands. They have a very long bony middle finger. They use it to grab fruits and seeds and to pull insects out of trees.
This witch-like finger has gotten aye-ayes into trouble. According to legend, if an aye-aye points its long finger at you, you're dead. Even though this isn't true, people have killed aye-ayes, believing this crazy superstition. Because of this killing and a loss of their habitat, aye-ayes have become endangered.
