  1. That little aye aye is beautiful, but I’ve always been partial to the tarsier, which is my favorite primate. Although, the charm of this aye aye could almost cause me to change my mind.

  2. I like tarsiers to. Did a rather large paper on them in grad school.

  3. I don’t know – I guess they could be beautiful to other Aye Ayes. It is so different.

  4. Oh, that’s it call the baby ugly! Seriously, I think it is the fact that they are sooo different that makes me like them. As I mentioned in an earlier post, they are the primate equivalent of a woodpecker. Which explains some of their weird features (the oversize ears and middle finger as well as unique dentition).
