is it Cryptoprocta ferox? Cryptoprocta ferox is madagascar's largest predator and is sometimes called fossa.
Fossa fossanna(sp?) is madagascar's second largest predator also called fossa and striped civet.
here is a pic of Cryptoprocta ferox
well now that i have looked at many pics of Cryptoprocta ferox i do not think it looks to be the same creature as in your picture. extremely
tell us how that critter is as a pet. he looks nice. i would like to have one of the big fossas. that would be sweet. i read that fossas walk flat
footed like bears, unlike felids that walk on there feet.
also saw a #e load of different types of civets yet nothing just like your pic.
