This is an Aye-aye.
Yeah, I'd never heard of it either until today. It's a rodent-like mammal -- a Primate, actually -- with a large middle finger. (Describes a few people I know.)
These buggers live in Madagascar. They tap on trees to locate grubs, tear off the bark with their teeth and then insert a jumbo middle finger to extract the bugs. It's fucking brilliant. A woodpeckerish-mammalian-rodent-cum-primate. The dude's got it all.
Why is this important?
Dunno. I just felt the need to share.
