What Is This Thing?!?!?
I Need Help
I came across a picture of this creature quite awhile ago on the Internet. Ever since, I have used it as a profile picture on many of my accounts online. On most of those sites I have posted an open question as to the identity of the species of this weird little animal. None have answered to my satisfaction. All answers were just guesses...I want a definite answer and proof of identity.
This, my friends, is what brings me to write this hub. I am hoping someone out there that reads this knows for sure what this thing is. If you do not know then pass this hub along to someone that you think might. I would surely appreciate it.
Here is what I heard or thought it was:
- Bat: maybe, but I don't see wings.
- Monkey: maybe, but what kind of freakin' monkey is that?!?!
- Rat: no...rats don't have fingers.
Another possibility is that it is the fabled Sumatran Rat-Monkey, the dastardly beast from the movie Dead Alive (aka Braindead)! This cursed beast, according to legend, is a hybrid resulting from the vicious rape of tree monkeys by brutal plague rats.
Anyone who comes across a Sumatran Rat-Monkey would do best to steer clear. It's bite is so deadly that immediate amputation of the effected limb is the only thing that can save the victim from a gruesome death....and un-death!
Strong resemblence but I don't think that is it either.
So...is there anyone out there that can help me find a solid answer to this mystery?
The mystery has been solved by one of the commenters. The weird little thing is an Aye-Aye. I guess the search for the Sumatran Rat-Monkey will continue.
