well i am a bit of a nature freak and love watching animal documentaries, whenever i can. and i can tell you that the fossa is native to madagascar and even though they look similar to cats, their closest living relatives are mongooses.
The dictionary says it is part of the civet (cat) family, but National Geographic says that now they recognize it as part of the mongoose family. Very interesting. Thanks for posting!
What a beautiful animal. I'm not familiar with the fossa - will have to look it up.
