Fossa’s like to live in big forests with lots of trees and places to hide!

Sometimes, Fossa’s will live down by the water, moving closer to the ocean!

Their territory can be as big as 4 square kilometers, that’s as big as 43 football fields!

Fossa’s love to climb trees and look for food!

Not only can they climb well, but they can reach running speeds of over 50 km/hr!
