Historically, Aye-ayes were considered an ill omen or a harbinger of evil (maybe cuz they look so creepy). Villagers believed that they brought death to a village, and would kill them on sight. Along with the destruction of their habitats, Aye-ayes are now an endangered species. There are now laws protecting Aye-ayes, and rehabilitation programs are in place at various zoos.
