Sometimes, however, they catch it by mistake, finding an aye-aye in a trap which has been set for lemurs.
The aye-aye, in every point of its structure, like every created thing, is full of design.
For example, a Christian wrote to me about an animal called the aye-aye.
aye-aye (ī-ī; Cheirŏmys madagascariensis), an animal of Madagascar, so called from its cry; now referred to the lemur family.
Even more curious still is the aye-aye, of Madagascar, which has puzzled naturalists very much.
After dancing and roaring till he was tired he picked up the aye-aye and marched on, talking loud.
The aye-aye is about as big as a rather small cat, and its great bushy tail is longer than its head and body put together.
The tail varies from complete absence (in the Loris) to a great length and bushiness in the aye-aye.
The aye-aye has a specially adapted finger for extracting insects from their hiding-places.
aye-aye, the answer to a sentinel's hail, from a boat which has a commissioned officer on board below the rank of captain.
