According to The I-Spyder Book of Earth Creatures, the aye-aye — formally known as Daubentonia madagascariensis —was a type of lemur. It dwelt in forests and was mostly active at night. It had "black fur with white around its eyes and nose". The mammal had long middle fingers. These made digging out insects, its preferred food, more convenient. Its tail was one-and-a-half the length of its body, which was 30 centimetres, meaning that its total length was about 75 cm.
Behind the scenes Edit
- As with some other animals in The Last Dodo, there was a discrepancy between the point value given on the individual animal's page (500), and the amount Martha Jones was said to have received for actually spotting one (900).
- The hands of the Silents were inspired by the hands of aye-ayes. (REF: The Brilliant Book 2012)
