Primates like the strange looking Aye-aye and all species of lemurs like the Bamboo, Weasel, Mouse, Verreaux's, Red-ruffed, Black and Dwarf Lemur are found here. Madagascar is home to about half of the world's species of Chameleons including the world's smallest chameleon- Leaf Chameleon. About 280 bird species out of which over 110 endemics are also found here.
