MADAGASCAR   -   OCT-NOV 2010   -   MAMMALS

Here's a gallery of some of the fantastic mammals found on Madagscar. It's best known for its endemic primates, especially the beautiful lemurs and sifakas. While they virtually all seriously endangered, they are usually fairly easy to see in the national parks
and other protected areas, especially with the help of a good local guide.
