A brown lemur (Eulemur fulvus fulvus) eating wild guava fruits. Lemurs belong to a group of primates called the prosimians, meaning before monkeys . Everywhere in the world except Madagascar, monkeys replaced them 35 million years ago. Madagascar has outstanding biodiversity; most of its flora and fauna is unique to the island and can be found nowhere else.
