    Madagascar Lemurs
    After watching the animation movie Madagascar, i learned alot about lemurs. Lemurs are mostly found in Madagascar and they are cute creature. Lemurs also known as "the sun worshiper". This is because they love to "sun-bath" in the morning.

    Lemurs are divided into two types. The first type is nocturnal and the other is the "sun worshipers". They ate fruits and sometimes small insects. Prosimians are those primates that evolved before the anthropoids. The first prosimian appears in the fossil record about 55 million years ago, the first monkey about 45 million years ago, and the first ape about 35 million years ago. Before the appearance of anthropoids, prosimians were quite prevalent. Their fossils have been discovered in all corners of the world, including Europe, Asia, Egypt and even in the northwestern United States. While Madagascar broke away from Three young lemursAfrica more than 120 million years ago, it's puzzling to scientists that lemurs evolved only 55 million years ago. One of the theories of how lemurs got to Madagascar is that they rafted there on clumps of vegetation.
