Before I arrived to Madagascar for the first time, all I associated with the country was Zaboomafoo and this movie cover, which I saw once, way back in 2005. What I remembered about the movie was the cool animals- the lions, hippos, giraffes, zebra and lemurs, and so I assumed the country was FILLED with these! Then I arrived. And no lions. No hippos. No giraffes or zebras. At least there were lemurs! LOTS of lemurs, and loads of other beautiful and magnificent wildlife in Madagascar- and for this I am grateful. So, the lesson of the post is: don’t believe everything you see on a movie cover, but come to Madagascar anyways because it’s amazing.
PS: In the movie, if you watch it again, those bigger animals aren’t born in Madagascar, but accidentally land in Madagascar from the Central Park Zoo.
