The aye-aye is the world’s largest nocturnal primate, living in rainforest and deciduous forest in Madagascar. Because of deforestation though, aye-ayes have had to live in cultivated areas. Aye-ayes are omnivores, with a diet of  grubs, nuts, fungi, seeds, fruit, bamboo shoots, and nectar. Female aye-ayes mate every 2 0r 3 years, at any time of the year. Their gestation period is about 170 days long, and they live for about 10 years.
