Oh, good one, I forgot about Madagascar. They said there was a lemur there the size of a gorilla. Went extinct. When? Around the time man arrived there.
Yes; there was also a giant flightless bird in Madagascar (similar in size to New Zealand's Moa, but thicker and heavier), and it went extinct shortly after the arrival of man, as well. Interestingly the original human colonizers of Madagascar were distantly related to the Polynesians who settled Hawaii, Polynesia, and New Zealand. They migrated to Madagascar traveling along the islands of the Indian ocean which lie between Africa and India.
