New lemurs found

Two new species of lemur have been found in Madagascar, bringing the number of known species to 49.

German and Malagasy scientists made the discovery by analysing the genetic make-up of wild lemurs.

Lemurs are considered the most endangered of all primates and live only on Madagascar which has evolved in isolation for 165 million years.
