|via Madagascar Wiki|
Watching the movie did inspire genuine curiosity for me about the nation of Madagascar. Get ready for Cliff Clavin Mode. Did you know...
- 90% of the animals native to Madagascar are found nowhere else in the world.
- As such, many ecologists consider the island to be, in effect, an eighth continent.
- There are over 100 species and subspecies of lemur in Madagascar.
- According to a 2012 survey, there are over 200 species of mammal, about 300 birds, 260 reptiles and 266 amphibians native to the island.
- The island's unique wildlife is the result of 88 million years of isolation.
- Madagascar is the world's fourth-largest island, after Greenland, New Guinea and Borneo.
