Five Sisters Zoo unveil latest animal - and he is adorable
Zazu, the Fossa, arrived at the Zoo on Friday morning from Dvur Kralove Zoo in the Czech Republic.
Posting on Facebook, the Zoo said: "Fossa are only found in Madagascar where it is the largest native carnivore. Despite looking like cats this intelligent species is, in fact, a close living relative of the mongooses. Unfortunately, this incredible species is now considered vulnerable to extinction in the wild. This is mainly due to habitat destruction and human-wildlife conflict. There are now large efforts being made to restore various habitats in Madagascar through conservation education in Malagasy communities and extensive field research."
