Sir David Attenborough on Madagascar's amazing animals

White lemur in the country of Madagascar

The African island of Madagascar is one of the most intriguing wildlife habitats in the world - it's home to loads of species that can't be found anywhere else.

Ghostly white lemurs and pygmy chameleons, reptiles only slightly bigger than ants, are just two animals that live on the island off the east coast of Africa.

Wildlife extraordinaire Sir David Attenborough has been to the country for a new TV series about the marvellous animals of Madagascar.

He spoke to Leah about his trip and even told her about the different pets he's had!
