On our last day in Kirindy we were really hoping to get a daylight glimpse of the Fosa. So far we had only seen them at night. When we were packing and ready to leave our guide came shouting “Fosa! Fosa!!” I grabbed my camera & never ran faster in my life! The large male was patrolling the camp for scraps, especially around the kitchen area, it was obviously a regular visitor. At some point it stopped to drink from a water tank and this is when I grabbed this photo. I wanted to showcase those amazing golden eyes. The water tank was quite close to the chicken coop and they were causing one hell of a terrified racket! I think they have had close calls with this mighty predator before.
