In Tsimanampetsotsa National Park situated in the southwest of Madagascar, a young diving enthusiast Australian has recently updated an underwater cave that could shelter a paleontological treasure in its depths. Indeed, on the floor of the cave are the skeletons of disappeared animal, such as giant lemurs.
Scientists from the National Geographic Foundation and the National Science Foundation have already initiated the very first explorations of the site and working on it to be able to determine how these species have died.
"At the moment, they found four extinct species of giant lemurs, elephant, bird remains, dwarf hippos, crocodiles with horns and bat, only extinct species. Scientists are really flabbergasted," said the young man behind this major discovery.
