Lemurs have adapted to fill many open ecological niches since making their way to Madagascar.[11][24] Their diversity in both behavior and morphology (outward appearance) rivals that of the monkeys and apes found elsewhere in the world.[2] Ranging in size from the 30 g (1.1 oz) Madame Berthe's Mouse Lemur, the world's smallest primate,[25] to the recently extinct 160–200 kg (350–440 lb) Archaeoindris fontoynonti,[26] lemurs evolved diverse forms of locomotion, varying levels of social complexity, and unique adaptations to the local climate.[11][27]
