This male fossa (usually pronounced to rhyme with "pusher") was probably bolder than usual as its mating season. Very rare to get so close. Amazing luck x

its not pronounced to rhyme with "pusher" in my dodgy Lancashire/Manchester accent, that would sound very odd ;-) But Tis very cute!

It looks like a dog or fox with an extra-long tail.

Simply lovely animal. Very alert. Immensely long tail.

Is it related to the dog? It looks to me to be a bit like a dingo.

Was he scavenging?

"The foosa. They are always annoying us by trespassing, interrupting our parties, and ripping our limbs off." :)

Perhaps it's just me, perhaps it's the lighting, but it looks like a taxidermist has had his way with it!
