Our oldest aye-aye, Endora, just celebrated her 33rd birthday yesterday! (Since she was wild caught as an adult in 1991, her age and birthdate are estimated). Her technician, Jodi Stirk, made a healthy (raisins, frozen banana, honey and monkey chow) cake to help celebrate the occasion. Endora lives with our second oldest aye-aye (Ozma, 31), so of course Jodi had to make a cake for Ozma too. The two old ladies celebrated close together, but separately, in style (Endora on the floor of the enclosure, where she spends a lot of her time, and Ozma on the green shelf). Besides the fact that both old gals have cataracts, are losing some pigmentation in their extremities (check out Endora's taping finger), and are a bit slow getting around, the ladies are in excellent shape for their ages!
