Mammals of Madagascar Part 4

Hi people,

In the summer of 2023 I went on a birdwatching trip of five weeks, chasing as many mammals as I could! I got to a whopping 77 species of mammals, of which most were also caught on film. I will upload one video per week.

Here is part 4 (of 4):

Species depicted in part 4:

I used the services of Patrick Richard, which I found on! I highly recommend his services! His expertise lies in finding and identifying mammals, reptiles and amphibians. He is also very good at organising your trip!
