Pure Beauty II by la-niebla Pure Beauty II by la-niebla
Fossa,
Zoo Olomunc (Czech Republic)

The fossa (Cryptoprocta ferox) is a mammal endemic to Madagascar. A member of family Eupleridae. It is the largest mammalian carnivore on the island of Madagascar. The fossa is a very agile animal. It can leap from tree to tree and displays a squirrel-like agility. The fossa is extremely catlike in appearance and behavior; it is often likened to the clouded leopard, a feline native to southeast Asia.
You probably know it from the 'Madagascar' movie :D

It's one of the most beautiful animals I've ever seen. Unfortunatelly, there were fewer than 2,500 mature individuals in the wild.
