Litter Size

How many babies does a Aye-aye have at once? (litter size)

How many baby Aye-ayes are in a litter?

A Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 166 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 122 grams (0.27 lbs) and measure 0.4 cm (0′ 1″). They are a member of the Daubentoniidae family (genus: Daubentonia). An adult Aye-aye grows up to a size of 40 cm (1′ 4″).

To have a reference: Humans obviously usually have a litter size of one ;). Their babies are in the womb of their mother for 280 days (40 weeks) and reach an average size of 1.65m (5′ 5″). They weight in at 62 kg (137 lbs), which is obviously highly individual, and reach an average age of 75 years.

The aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) is a long-fingered lemur, a strepsirrhine primate native to Madagascar with rodent-like teeth that perpetually grow and a special thin middle finger.It is the world’s largest nocturnal primate. It is characterized by its unusual method of finding food: it taps on trees to find grubs, then gnaws holes in the wood using its forward-slanting incisors to create a small hole in which it inserts its narrow middle finger to pull the grubs out. This foraging method is called percussive foraging, and takes up 5–41% of foraging time. The only other animal species known to find food in this way is the striped possum. From an ecological point of view, the aye-aye fills the niche of a woodpecker, as it is capable of penetrating wood to extract the invertebrates within.The aye-aye is the only extant member of the genus Daubentonia and family Daubentoniidae. It is currently classified as Endangered by the IUCN; and a second species, Daubentonia robusta, appears to have become extinct at some point within the last 1000 years.
