Madagascar National Parks
The country of the lemurs




The lemur is probably the endemic mammal that embodies best the remarkable quality of the fauna of Madagascar. Fifteen (15) kinds of diurnal and nocturnal lemurs are listed in the five (5) families living in Malagasy land: the Cheirogaleidaes, the Lepilemuridaes, the Lemuridaes, the Indridaes and the aye-aye. The aye-aye is a particular lemur, because each part of its body remind another animal. And yet, it is unique!

However, the list of the species in danger raised by the International Union for the Conservation of the NatureIUCN makes a state of 63% of species of lemurs threatened of extinction on the 71 species that Madagascar shelters.
