how old is the seafloor between madagascar and mozambique? is it possible large mammals could have walked to a formerly connected madagascar, but died out when it was separated, and their range wasn't enough to support them? what kinds of fossils are found on the island?

Interesting article and food for thought... I'm having memories of the expedition that set themselves afloat from Latin America on a raft to prove colonization of the Pacific Islands... or some such. Have to read back up on that.

Thanks,

Ken

Kon Tiki expedition.

Didn't you see the movie? Thanks to the pengulins, they were washed ashore in their crates.
