Madagascar's lemur catta
Lemur catta is a symbol of the island of Madagascar.
Zoologist F. Sclater is the author of the theory that Madagascar is part of the sunken continent. The scientist claims that several million years ago, rising sea levels isolated part of the land. This is how the unique island fauna of Madagascar was formed.
According to legend, the ancient Roman navigators, first sailed to Madagascar, saw the burning eyes of small animals, who shouted loudly. The found land was called Lemuria in ancient Roman, meaning inhabited by evil spirits. So, these funny animals got their name. Locals call these animals macke.
