Madagascar Things to Do: 137 reviews and 267 photos
Madagaskar has a very special fauna with animals, which you won't see elsewhere. For example: the Kattas, which are a primitive kind of primate which is called Lemurs. They live in the jungles of Madagascar. You have to take a guided tour to see them in the dark forests.
I easily saw them at the Zoo in Tana.
Lemurs belong to the sub-order Strepsirhini together with bushbabies, lorises, and pottos which?like the original lemurs?are nocturnal, insectivorous primates characterized by a small body, a long nose, and large eyes. Lemurs have an interesting evolutionary history and the only reason they still exist today is because of Madagascar's isolation.
