Description: Since the age of dinosaurs, Madagascar has thrived in isolation off the east coast of Africa. Hundreds of animal and plant species, most famously the lemurs, have evolved here and only here, while other creatures extinct elsewhere for tens of millions of years now vie with-modern man for survival. Inside The Eighth Continent find:
-- A herpetologist with a pied piper call to reptiles who has discovered and collected more Malagasy species than any other biologist -- and continues to discover more every year.
-- A paleoecologist searching an enormous cavern complex for clues as to why the island's megafauna, Galapagos-sized tortoises, lemurs as big as apes, 10-foot-tall birds and pygmy hippos, among others -- all died out less than two millennia ago.
-- An archeologist trying to answer the most basic and puzzling question about the Malagasy people: Where did they come from?
-- And a primatologist who studies elusive jungle lemurs even as she strives to prevent the island's total ecological destruction.
-- As Tyson delves into the island's storied interior and misty past, a burning question always lies just beneath the surface: Can this real-life "lost world" be saved?
