The fossa is Madagascar’s largest carnivore. While it looks like a cross between a puma and a dog, the fossa is actually related to the mongoose. It is one of the few animals in Madagascar that hunts lemurs.
You can learn more about the fossa in an interview with Mia-Lana Lührs: Saving Madagascar’s largest carnivorous mammal: the fossa.
