I saw a documentary on Madagascar and how 10 out of 12 months the land is dry and parched. The food chain is remarkable there. Although nothing was said about tortoises, many wildlife are endanger of going extinct due to poachers. Although the island is rich with wildlife, i wouldn't want to live there.

I thought Madagascar was a lot of rain forest.
Isn't this where the lemurs are from?

I have wondered since I joined, if any members actually own ploughshares. Apparently not. I hope there are many captive breeding programs, otherwise.
