4/22/2005: Baby aye-aye



Another item that has been on Yahoo Most Popular for a while until xoB found a better version on WaPo. What we have here is an "aye-aye", which is the largest nocturnal primate in the world. Kintana is its name (doesn't tell us male or female). After it grows up it will look a little more like a monkey.

Until then, it resides in your nightmares.

Interestingly, someone else (don't have a note) recently sent a tarsier, another nighttime primate:



We haven't seen a lot of images of these animals, because they are nocturnal - since they only come out at night, the world doesn't see them as often as they see other beasties. Their big eyes must be a factor in their night life.



The aye-aye has a ring finger twice as long as its other fingers. The larvae they prefer are found inside a small seed, so they use that digit to open the seed up and pull out the larvae goo. Good eats.

I was in the emergency room last week for my ankle and saw a woman who had overdosed on something or other. She looked like this critter.



lookout123  Friday Apr 22 01:08 PM

hey, isn't the thing in the first photo from Lord of the Rings?



Happy Monkey  Friday Apr 22 01:46 PM

Yeah, I'm not sure I even need to photoshop that to turn it into a fictional creature...



jaguar  Friday Apr 22 01:55 PM

Isn't that second one the O'Reilly one? I buy so many of their books I got a free notepad (woo!) from their london sales dude and I'm sure it's the same creature.

Or consider the factor that they look like they fell out of the ugly tree and hit EVERY branch on the way down.

I ain't touching this'n...



Elspode  Friday Apr 22 02:07 PM

This unfortunate critter should have been named "uh-uh", not aye-aye.



wolf  Friday Apr 22 02:13 PM

It's properly named, just misspelled.

Trilby  Friday Apr 22 03:27 PM

It looks like my firstborn. I think it's cute, ya'all.

(reason #1 for not having Beltane Babies...)

Aw, who doesn't know the tarsier? It's on the cover of O'Reilly's UNIX book.

^^-- Eh, beaten.


Happy Monkey  Friday Apr 22 03:43 PM

It's Scott Farkus! (He had yellow eyes! So, help me, God! Yellow eyes!)



Clodfobble  Friday Apr 22 04:33 PM

It looks like a Firey to me.



dar512  Friday Apr 22 05:58 PM

I think it's dobby from HP.



jaguar  Friday Apr 22 08:02 PM

Thanks vsp, I didn't feel like ripping apart my bookshelf to check all the covers.



capnhowdy  Friday Apr 22 08:50 PM

I bet these critters will bite like hell.
The guy holding him has a band-aid and the rest of his hand looks kinda rough.
I feel better now knowing I only have mice in my house.............



LCanal  Friday Apr 22 10:54 PM

That second one is a Slow Lorris. The only venomous mammal, if you discount my ex...

Actually it's on two O'Reilly books: vi and UNIX.

That's Jennifer Connelly, who has made a very nice transition from teen actress to very successful adult (non-porn) hottie actress.



LCanal  Monday Apr 25 03:23 AM

Quite correct. I watched a show once on a guy that picked one up, not nice. I beleive it's only the male but.....I've been wrong before.



LCanal  Monday Apr 25 03:24 AM

Knock, knock, "There's a man at the door with a bill" "No it's not it's duck with a hat on.



axlrosen  Monday Apr 25 02:15 PM

I think it looks more like this:

Wake up time!

Some mornings, the family cat climbs into bed, gets three inches from the face, and stares intently until we wake up.

If she looked like the aye-aye, I think we would never risk falling asleep.
