The Stone Forest of Madagascar
The Grand Tsingy of Bemaraha in western Madagascar is the world’s largest stone forest. Isolated and inhospitable, this huge collection of razor-sharp, high spiked vertical rocks of eroded limestone looks like the last place where wildlife would thrive.
But despite its cold, dangerous appearance, the labyrinth of 300 foot stones is home to a number of animal species, including 11 types of lemur. Its name “Tsingy” translates as ‘where one cannot walk’.

Zoo keeper Ding Ming has adopted an orphaned ring-tailed lemur in Shijiazhuang, capital of northern China’s Hebei Province. She made the orphan lemur an incubator, which has a ceiling bulb to keep the tiny primate warm. It also contains a large fluffy stuffed monkey to keep the youngster company.
