I love funny looking little creatures. I actually find the ones that most people label ‘ugly’ as very adorable. Probably why I love Chinese Cresteds and Xoloitzcuintli dogs. I am currently owned by a Chinese Crested “Whisper”.
I also have a thing for Sloths, Flying Fox Bats, Fruit Bats…ok, many different types of Bats and other little things I can’t think of at the moment. Did I ever tell you guys I tried my hand at Little Brown Bat rehab? They have a very LOW survival rate once in rehab so I stepped away from it. That’s a story for a different time.
The reason for this here post is because of the Aye Aye. I’m sure many of you have seen the pictures of the Aye Aye floating around the internet and may have wondered what it is, like I did, or maybe you didn’t, heh! You can find the official explanation on Wiki, that the Aye Aye is a species of Lemur from Madagascar.
Here are a few pictures of the mysterious creature I speak of, I’m thinking I may have to do some creature creations in Poly Clay…
