Study: Nose picking lemur makes history


LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Time for an animal story that’s more gross than cute…

A Nose-Picking lemur in Durham, North Carolina has made history.

It was the nose-picking that did it, making it the first time anyone has documented that behavior in the species of lemur known as the ‘Aye-Aye.’

The Journal of Zoology published the findings on Wednesday.

The lemur in question is a female known as Kali, at the Duke Lemur Center.

She is seen inserting her extremely long finger a surprisingly long way down her nose and then licking her finger clean.

The Aye-Aye’s long, skinny middle finger is perfectly shaped for deep digging.
