The fossa is a threatened species endemic to Madagascar

It's Madagascar's top predator, and there are less than 2500 left in the wild. Meet the fossa.

    Gonna say it’s more between a ferret and a bat.

    I would say, “there are FEWER than 2500 left in the wild.”

    This post starts out by scaring you. They don't explain the habitat carrying capacity, or cycle of prey to predator. They only want to spread fear without educating you... Dig deeper into the science before you take this site at face value..

    Admirable is its ability to easily descend a tree trunk . Not many felines do. Strange critter to be sure. Even its name is strange:" Fossa"
