Animals Only a Mother Could Love

Consider being born as a platypus. (actually, ‘hatched’ as a platypus)   And as you come to awareness, it’s oh no, I am a platypus…   There are lots of unfortunate animals that need love too, and here is a small collection for your consideration.

Say hello to the Aye-Aye,  a type of lemur, primates only found on the isle of Madagascar.   It taps on tree-trunks looking for hidden insect grubs.   When it finds one, it chews through the bark and uses its unusually long middle finger to pull out the bug.   Aye-ayes are endangered because of the current burning of their habitat for farmland.
