Fossa Cubs Come out for Crowds

You might remember fossas from the film Madagascar, which is also the name of the island they are native to, but today you can see them in Omaha, Nebraska. The Henry Doorly Zoo has just introduced two fossa cubs to visitors.

Fossa are carnivores and they primarily eat lemurs. The are part of the mongoose family and can weigh up to 30 lbs. when fully grown.
