  2. This is my book. I just got to hold a copy in my hands, and began realizing how much I miss Madagascar, and also started tallying the hours I’ve spent in a windowless office over the past year… LET’S GO!

  3. 
Feast your eyes on perhaps the cutest cannibal in the animal kingdom.
The gray mouse lemur is featured in a new study in the American Journal of Primatology, which describes what may be the first case of adult cannibalism in this species and possibly of any nonhuman primate species, the report said.
“It has been thought that primate cannibalism only occurs in the context of infant eating, and adults do not consume the flesh of other adults,” according to the report, which comes on the heels of bizarre cannibal behavior among humans.
The researcher collared a sample of lemurs in the Kirindy forest of western Madagascar in late 2010.
In a surprising discovery, an adult male lemur was found chomping away for 20 minutes on an adult female found hanging from vegetation.

  4. From BBC Nature: The rarest ducklings in the world: The Madagascar pochard

The conservationists collected 24 eggs from nests at the side of the lake. They initially reared the ducklings from those eggs in a hotel bathroom, while a captive breeding centre was being prepared.

Tsingy de Bemaraha national park in Madagascar has a forest of limestone pillars. The word tsingy means “where one cannot walk barefoot.” Water eroded caves and passages through the land, the roofs of which eventually collapsed and left the pillars standing up to 70 meters tall. The tops of the rocks have a vastly different ecosystem from the valleys, and from the surrounding savannahs. The stone forest is home to thousands of species not seen outside of Madagascar.

i was JUST writing about this tsingy for my new other places publishing travel guide!

Made from the silk of a million spiders. In these days of fast and disposable fashion, the idea of taking eight years to manufacture two unwearable garments seems outlandish. Yet a textile designer and an entrepreneur have woven two extraordinary pieces of clothing from Madagascan spider silk.

i pretty much want this outfit.
