Never underestimate the lengths to which a living creature will go for food, especially the Aye-Aye. A rare type of lemur only found on the island of Madagascar, the Aye-Aye can live as far as 700 meters above the ground in tree canopies, tapping on tree bark with their fingers up to eight times per second to listen for insects.

Not one to miss out on late-night grub, Aye-Ayes may travel as far as 2.5 miles per night in search of it. What really makes the Aye-Aye a bizarre creature, though, is its spindly fingers and piercing eyes. In some cultures, the Aye-Aye is seen as an omen of death.
