Madagascar’s Legendary Lemurs

Among its stone forests, spiny groves and lush jungles, on the mystical island of Madagascar live over 100 species of endemic Lemurs.

Produced by NHNZ

In isolation for over 88 million years these ancient primates have adapted into the remarkable creatures they are today. Amongst the Aye Aye with it’s extended twig- like hunting finger; the side stepping, leaping Sifakas and the Ring Tailed Lemurs with their own personal form of communication, live examples of the species that are as high as your shoulder or small enough to hold in the palm of your hand.
