  • The island is one of the biggest producers of vanilla.
  • It has everything from mountains to coasts.

We can hardly wait to explore the habitats of this large island. We plan to meet the island’s most famous residents- the lemur; along with reptiles and other interesting characters like the fossa! We’ll see you tomorrow with our newest animal friend!
