I had this knowledge lurking in my lizard brain from sometime back, but had totally forgotten about it until this landed on my desk yesterday. Completely mind-boggling really.

Madagascar almost the same size as the U.K.? Wow. Anyhoo, here it is in video format too if you are preferring the moving pictures, sahib.
