Baby Aye-Aye Lemur Born at SF Zoo

From the San Francisco Chronicle:
It's rough being an endangered aye-aye lemur: It takes 2 to 3 hours to copulate, and if you don't have a good teacher, you may never procreate at all.
A pair of the nocturnal creatures from Madagascar got lucky, however. The proof: the baby aye-aye born sometime June 20 or June 21 at the San Francisco Zoo. Like its parents, the baby aye-aye has big ears, wiry fur and, most notably, a long, bony middle finger topped with a razor-sharp claw, which the lemur will eventually use to hunt around trees for grubs.
OMG! Look at it!
