Alpaca


It resembles a sheep in appearance, but is bigger and has a long erect neck in addition to coming in lots of colours, whereas sheep are often bred to be black and white.
Alpacas are significantly smaller than llamas, and unlike them aren’t used as beasts of burden but are valued just for their fiber. Alpacas just have fleece fibers, not woolen fibers, used for making woven and knitted things substantially as sheeps wool is. These products include jumpers, socks, and blankets, jumpers, hats, gloves, scarves, a wide selection of fabrics and ponchos in South America and jackets in the rest of the planet. The fiber comes in more than 52 natural colours classified in Peru, classified in America and 12 as classified in Australia.

Aye-aye

The Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) is a strepsirrhine native to Madagascar that joins rodent-like teeth using a long, thin middle finger to fill the same ecological niche as a woodpecker. Its unique method of finding food is the world’s largest nocturnal primate, and characterizes it; it adds its elongated middle finger to pull out the grubs, then gnaws at holes and exploits on trees to find grubs.
Daubentonia is the only genus in infraorder Chiromyiformes and the family Daubentoniidae. The Aye-aye is the only extant member of the genus (though it’s now an endangered species); a second species (Daubentonia robusta) was exterminated in the last few centuries.
