Geheimnisvolles Madagaskar - Im Reich der Kattas

Im Reich der Kattas

Madagascar. Nowhere else do so many bizarre animals live as here: the elegant fossa, which specialises in hunting Madagascar's semi-monkeys, the world-famous lemurs; chameleons that only live for a few months; or spiders that confuse their attackers with a dance. All of Madagascar's animals share one destiny: the island has already lost 90% of its original habitats through slash-and-burn agriculture and livestock farming. Is there a chance of survival for them?
