Mike does Illustration Friday: "Superstition"

Mike says: The Aye-Aye is a fantastic nocturnal animal that has the ill fortune of being considered evil in parts of Madagascar. Some island superstitions urge shooting the animal on sight.

As a tour guide at the Duke Lemur Center I get to see these lovely rare primates each week. The long middle finger and big ears are used to tap and sound out hollows where tasty bugs may lie. The front teeth are sharp enough to chew through concrete!

Listen to the call on the Duke Lemur Center website.
