Animals of Madagascar list with photos and names | Animal world of Madagascar

Madagascar is the center of endemic wildlife, which makes up most of the fauna of the island. The fact that the island remained in relative isolation after breaking off from the Gondwana supercontinent ensured that nature would flourish without human impact until about 2,000 years ago.

About 75% of all animals found in Madagascar are native species.

All known species of lemurs live only in Madagascar.

Due to isolation, many animals living in the African mainland, such as lions, leopards, zebras, giraffes, monkeys and antelopes, did not come to Madagascar.

More than 2/3 of the world’s chameleons live on the island.
