Madagascar (79) More files... by Pete Oxford and Renee Bish
Hailed as the eighth continent the red island of Madagascar remains a land of intrigue and mystery. With affinities to Africa, Asia and South America, the fourth largest island in the world, floats alone in the Indian Ocean. The island is home to some of the worlds most unusual flora and fauna. The most well known of which are undoubtedly the tribes of lemurs and reptiles. From the Aye-aye to the 2 foot giant Parsons chameleon, or the fossa to the leaf-tailed gecko. The avifauna leaves you standing, mesites, vangas, couas, whole families of birds found nowhere else.
