Its a Fossa by Culpeo-Fox Its a Fossa by Culpeo-Fox
I always had a soft spot for Fossas for whatever reason - everything about them is weird. Weird name, weird appearance (catlike and yet anything else but a cat), weird anatomy (hence their latin name), weird sexuality features (females go through a fake masculization in their first years) - and boy, they sure do some weird sounds. Awesome critters.

This guy appeared on paper while randomly scribbling some Fossas. I kinda liked him, so here you go with Dean Prior (yeah, i named him after an english village).

I don't know yet who he is. We'll see.

I saw this and was curious about what sounds a fossa makes but all I can find are videos people took of fossa mating...where did you find out fossa sounds? (what does the fossa say Problem? )

They do mate as well somewhere in this video but you can hear them making their sounds throughout the whole thing (yes, it is that weird "Ork Ork Aaaark W") :p

I get its good that their reproducing (since theres only around 3000 left in the wild) but why record them doing it? that's the only thing I don't get.
