Episode InformationMadagascar is located roughly 250 miles from Africa’s Southeast Coast. It is roughly the size of France, making it the world's fourth largest island. Isolated from the African mainland for over 160 million years, more than 250,000 different species of animal can be found here; 70% of which are found nowhere else on the planet. Madagascar supports the third largest coral reef system in the world; the Toliara reef system. Many species of fish are found here, as well as large mammals such as the Hawksbill Turtle. Further from the coast, Humpback whales arrive to mate, displaying elegant shows of courtship in the deep.
