Baby Aye-Aye

2 of 11

Aye-Ayes are endangered in their homeland -- Madagascar -- in part because of poor relations with their human neighbors, who see the big-eyed, long-fingered creatures as "bad omens," according to ZooBorns.

But one look at this baby aye-aye, born at the Denver Zoo, proves they have more to fear from us than we do from them. This baby is the second of its species ever born in North America, and clocked in at a petite 82 grams at birth (that's less than 3 ounces). Over the next two weeks, the baby doubled its weight -- well on its way to reaching an adult size of about six pounds.
