The Tokandia is an enormous species of lemur allegedly inhabiting the lowland rainforests of eastern Madagascar. Tokandias are six feet long quadrupedal animals with grey hair, large arms and a bear or koala-like body shape. Its face is said to resemble an indri’s, but wider with a large cow-like jaw and a trunk-like snout. It moves in an unusual leaping motion and often climbs in trees. 

Tokandias have an unusual call that sounds like a man groaning, burping or shouting. Its description is nearly identical to Megaladapis edwardsi, a species of arboreal 200-pound lemur that lived in Madagascar as recently as the 1400s.
