Biodiversity challenge – Aye-aye

 Finger buffet

Behold the
Bug-eyed,
Bat-eared,
Buck-toothed
Beetle bandit.
You have to
Hand it
To a lemur
With a digit
That’s extreme
Enough to
Grab a grub
Concealed
Beneath the bark;
It’s quite a feat
To dig out dinner
From the dark
Nocturnal kernel
Of a tree
With mouth and
Middle finger.
All who agree
Say aye-aye.
