Aye-aye, Cap’n!

Not only does this scrawny lemur sail under a name that be pleasing to everyย captain’s ear, but he forages for buried treasure within the trees, by tapping the trunks to find the juicy grubs what lies within.

    Loving all the pirate themed pix and comments today but just too tired to do talk like a pirate today. SoCal actually had a thunder and lighting storm at 3 am today that totally disrupted everyone’s sleep so my brain is too foggy to make witty comments.
