Sinister creatures who could eat your Heart


Despite weighing only 4 pounds in the wild, small animals is seen as a harbinger of death by the local communities in Madagascar. This beast could penetrate the human heart when you sleep. Madagaskar is the only place on earth where these animals can be found in the wild.

According to legend, the aye-aye which has dark eyes, long fingers and looks disgusting, is expected to sneak into the house of the nearest village and use the middle finger to penetrate the human heart during sleep.
In fact the animal using the middle finger to find and harvest the larvae of insects in the trees.
This was done at night, tapping with the finger into the branches of trees to listen to the hole in the wood to look for grubs.
Superstitions around the aye-aye to grow because they do not fear humans. Even he will walk toward pedestrians to take a closer look.
The combination of attacks and habitat loss make facts Aye-aye on the list as “near threatened” in the IUCN Red List.
Aye-aye is one of the most unique creatures that can be found in nature. This unusual animal not only has its own genus (Daubentonia), but also his own family (Daubentoniidae). Longstanding debate about how to classify animals that want to know is whether rodents or primates.
