CRAP !!
Although it is an African nation, the island of Madagascar did not originate
as a separated piece of that continent, but rather broke off from the Indian
Subcontinent 88 million years ago. Consequently, it has been isolated for so
long that 90% of its wildlife can be found nowhere else on earth.
Madagascar sits on its own plate, but Since its formation the Madagascar
block has moved roughly in conjunction with Africa, and thus there are
questions as to whether the Madagascar Plate should be still considered a
separate plate.
