The difference between male and femaleis that the females have nipples. They areprimates, and their scientific nameis daubentonia madagascariensis. The Aye Aye mainly eats bamboo shoots, small vertebrates, coconuts, and insect larvae. It is prey to a catlike animal called the fossa. It is nocturnal, so it eats at night.It fills the niche of a woodpecker in its environmentand if it was removed, certain insects would overpopulate and the fossa would not have enough food. The major reason why the aye-aye is endangered is habitat destruction. To save them, scientists placed nineaye-ayes on an island off of the Madagascar coast, They study themand use it as an aye-aye reserve. "Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis)."
