(dis­cov­ery Kids, Hyp­pTV Ch 561, 6pm) Le­murs – In this episode, doc­u­men­tary film­mak­ing broth­ers Chris and Martin Kratt con­tinue their ex­plo­ration of an­i­mals’ unique bi­ol­ogy, phys­i­ol­ogy, nat­u­ral be­hav­iour and adap­ta­tions – this time tak­ing them to ex­otic Mada­gas­car. They tra­verse the cloud for­est in the north down to the desert in the south in search of the en­dan­gered lemur descen­dants of the proto-lemur. They are be­lieved to be the first lemur species to have in­hab­ited the is­land over 70 mil­lion years ago. In the depths of the for­est, the Kratts find le­murs that were thought to have died out 20 years ago, while gain­ing in­sights into the habi­tats of this pri­mate, whose dis­tinc­tive fea­tures are its long tail and hu­man-like hands.
