Response to 7 Adorable Baby Animals That Grow Into Monsters:
Ayes-ayes are nocturnal lemurs and are critically endangered. In their native Madagascar, they are frequently killed as they are seen by some Malagasy as bad omens, which is sad as they are really cool animals! Their long middle “finger” is an incredible adaptation that they use to help them locate and extract insects and larvae from underneath tree bark to eat. I’m sad that Buzzfeed is featuring and perpetuating such a negative viewpoint of such cool creatures!
