September 25: We began our last day in Perinet with this sighting of a tiny frog on a big sisal plant.
Then a jaunt down the road to Lemur Island, a small island owned by Vakona Lodge where lemurs climb on your head and shoulders to get at pieces of banana that the attendants put in your hands. Sounds hokey, but it's great fun.
Here they come!
This sifaka seemed bewildered by the goings-on.
A brown lemur with baby holding tight to her belly fur.
We then went down the road to the associated Crocodile Farm, where we saw
Fosa (pronounced "foosa"), Madagascar's largest endemic carnivore - about the size of a medium dog.
A cuckoo-roller that flies free but takes food from the attendant's lips.
We then got on the bus for the long ride back to Tana. Seen along the way
Patterns in the bright green rice fields.
