Tap-scanning and extractive foraging in aye-ayes, Daubentonia madagascariensis.

Author information

Abstract

The trees on which aye-ayes forage contain complex communities of organisms. Aye-ayes appear to use tap-scanning behaviour, in combination with complex perceptual and inferential capabilities, to exploit these communities as a source of food. In doing so, they alter them, perhaps to their own advantage.
