Fossas

I was glancing at the Zoonooz magazine, publication of the San Diego Zoo, and it featured an article and pictures of a strange creature, somewhere between a cat and a weasel, called a fossa. It looks like an animated cat, sort of off, with weird goat-like eyes, but is actually a rare creature all to itself, from Madegascar, land of strange critters. Apparently, it's getting rarer because the inhabitants of Madegascar tell all sorts of stories about the evil inclinations and powers of these animals, one of the only preditors in the ecosystem.
