- MEET MY NEW PET
Don't be scared little guy, Mingus isn't going to eat you. In fact I think he's more afraid of you then you are of him. I think that's why he has his head buried in his litter box right now.
Meet my new pet. He is a an aye-aye, a rare species of lemur from Madagascar, the first captive bred aye-aye straight out the UK from the Bristol Zoo Gardens. I bought him yesterday through some of my close connections at the Bristol Zoo.
I've named him Cutie-pie. He seems like a nervous little fellow but don't be fooled. As you can see on my hand is a band-aid that I had to apply after he gnawed off a small chunk of my finger while I was sleeping. Maybe I should get a cage for him but my friend said he likes to roam free. He also warned me that the first chance an aye-aye gets it will try to kill you by going straight for you neck. But, like one out of every 14,000 Americans I sleep with a motorcycle helmet on. Lucky for me.
