That must be one hell of a leaf as they're not that small!
Are the local people more educated now? As opposed to the old "omen of death, kill-them-on-sight" theory..

I heard they were bad luck. Did anyone tell you that or was it just the TV show making things up?

Lovely and scary at the same time.

Great photo. The aye-aye is now my favourite animal. If I had a sports team its nickname would be the aye-aye's. I can't quite figure out which sport though...Perhaps something which is mainly played in the dark.

Hooray for the long-awaited aye-aye picture. I like the leaf background, and considering the conditions/equip, that's a decent pic!

Awww, I saw one of these in the London Zoo, but it must be brilliant to see them in real life. Marvellous.

Not the best photo of an aye-aye maybe, but I rather love the graphic simplicity of the way this pic turned out

Ah. I knew they must have orange eyes for a reason!

Aye-Aye, eye-eye, burning bright in the forests of the night. ...Is it really as little as it looks or is that leaf ENORMOUS?
