Elphaba The Baby Lemur
This is Elphaba, the baby Aye-Aye Lemur that was born on November 29, 2011.
He was born at the Duke Lemur Center in Durham, NC.
The first two pictures of when Elphaba was only 3 days old.
The bottom photo was taken a few days ago.
Aye-Aye lemurs are unusual creatures.
Not only are these some goofy looking primates, but they also eat in a bazaar fashion.
They tap their little fingers on tree trunks all day long, searching for food.
They can tell by tapping if there is food (bug larvae) growing in the wood.
An extra long fingernail helps pry the food out.
Kind of cute...right?
