Fossas are the largest carnivorous animal on the island of Madagascar. They are cat-like in
appearance, reaching an average length between 2 and 2 1/2 feet. The tail of this civet is long, as is
the snout. Fossas are nocturnal and have cat like eyes which contract when exposed to the
sunlight. It is believed by some that these slits can become so narrow that the pupils disappear
entirely. The fur of the fossa is short and has a shiny reddish-brown colour. MORE!
