Aye-aye is an endemic animal of Madagascar. For many, they are considered the ugliest and the weirdest creatures in the world. The natives believe that directing their longest finger at a person heralds a quick and sudden death. It is also considered a bad omen that harbingers the destruction of crops. While some say aye-aye has a natural predisposition to become a Halloween showpiece, in the movie "Madagascar"—it appears as a funny character of Maurice, King Julien's faithful servant.
