Africa Geographic

April 2008; Vol. 16, No. 3

Africa Geographic (2008).
Perfect-Bound Magazine

This issue of Africa Geographic features a 12-page article (pp38-49) about the most unusual flora and fauna of Madagascar. The article by Philip Briggs is entitled "Madagascar's Eccentric XI" and features photographs by Ariadne Van Zandbergen. The eleven life forms covered are the tomato frog, Verreaux's sifaka, giraffe-necked weevil, aye-aye, fossa, elephant bird, vasa parrots, leaf-tailed geckos, pygmy stump-tailed chameleons, Didierea trees and tenrecs. The article is followed by a single-page advertisment for Africa Geographic Travel's 2008 expeditions to Madagascar.

This issue also includes a piece on Madagascar in the "Africa at a Glance" section (p17). The short piece, entitled "Giant Fossil Frog Unearthed", describes the discovery of a fossil of a huge 70-million-year-old frog.

Article Summary from page 38

Madagascar is arguably the world's single most important biodiversity hotspot, being home to some 1,000 vertebrate species that are unique to the island. Many of these are extraordinary in both appearance and habit. Philip Briggs examined them all, and selected a handful that seemed even stranger than the rest.
