Ring-tailed lemurs are endemic to what island, the world’s fourth-largest?

Lemurs are found only on Madagascar, the world’s fourth-largest island, and a few tiny islands nearby. It is thought that lemurs may have floated over the ocean on small rafts of vegetation, landing on Madagascar to evolve in isolation for millennia. There are at least 113 known lemur species on the island, ranging from the common ring-tailed lemurs to Madame Berthe’s mouse lemurs, which are the smallest primates in the world.
