A Beautiful Sifaka Lemur (and yes I took this photo).
Spending a night in Ankarafantsika National Park was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I could waste time trying to write about all the amazing creatures we found, but we took some amazing photos of the plants and animals we found on our night and early-morning hikes and I’d rather just let you look at them. In addition to several types of lemurs, we saw snakes, geckos, iguanas, owls, birds, and some amazing endemic plants unique only to the national park. Being in a place like Ankarafantsika shows how remarkable the biodiversity of Madagascar is, and it only makes our fieldwork in paleontology that much more special. Enjoy!
