    I found this 2014 lecture from the Duke Lemur Centre by Dr Luke Dollar who works in the research and conservation of the fossa in Madagascar.

    It is really quite an interesting and engaging talk about this apex predator so I thought I'd share it here on zoochat.

    Enjoy ;)

    No Offense to the Boky-Boky lovers out there, but I would consider the Fossa my favorite Malagasy predator besides the fanaloka. It reaches number 2 on the top 3, Salano being the third.
    But Very engaging video O.C.

    Why not ask in the "is this species in captivity thread?" ?
