Great article Lindsey! 615 new species of plants and critters found there in the last 10 years. I wish they could turn all of Madagascar into a reserve. So many things we still don't know about this planet. The tiny Lemur was cool too. At 3.6 inches long, the world's smallest primate. Wow. Thanks for this one!!

I really hope that they are all released (WITHOUT ANY CRAP ATTACHED IN AND ON THEM) in the wild where they belong, a life imprisoned is no life!
