The fossa is the largest carnivorous mammal and top predator on the island of Madagascar. At first glance, its remarkable features make this animal look like some weird mix of a cat (paws and claws), a monkey (long tail) and a weasel (head and small round ears) – in fact the closest relatives of the species are mongooses. Fossas are fierce predators; their main preys are lemurs but they hunt every small to medium-sized animal of the island from reptiles through rodents to birds.
