Madagascar exhibit with lemurs opens Saturday at S.C. Aquarium

Ring-tailed lemurs are about to steal the show at the S.C. Aquarium.

The waterfront tourist attraction on peninsular Charleston will open its new “Madagascar” exhibit on Saturday.

Expect to see a Nile crocodile, chameleons, frogs, parrots, stingrays, fish and other animals as part of the new exhibit that includes a rain forest and mangroves.
