|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|One of the world's most uncommon predators: Fossa. Endemic to Madagascar this very rare animal looks like a cross between a dog, a cat and a mongoose. It measures 2 meters head to tail. They are seldom spotted so i decided to see this animal in Tana Zoo instead. |
I felt very bad for this poor animal; it was hungry, underfed and stressed and constantly on the lookout for somebody who would feed him.
I wouldn't recommend the Tana zoo to anyone. After you've seen Madagascar's wildlife in the wild you will feel very depressed seeing the poor condition and bad circumstances of the zoo's animals.

Toutching these kind of stories, aldo i don't like pictures with bars in it, these one makes it special.aspecialy the look of the Fossa.. I have never heard about a animal like this, never seen it also..
Nice picture, thanks for sharing..
I agree with Olger, i'm not a big fan of bars/fences but this animal's expression... so sad... This is a very sharp photo, i wish the circumstances where better for the Fossa. Thanks for making me aware of such a creature!
I always feel sad for animals held in captivity, and this one is no exception, because you explain clearly the situation. Thank you for posting this unique predator picture. I didn't know it was existing. What is written on different websites, and the difficulty to get a decent shot about it is very interesting.
