Friday Cat-Like Blogging: Rare Fossa Pups

Amethyst Tate reports ‘Elusive’ Cat-Like Fossa Triplets Born for the First Time at the Chester Zoo:

A trio of adorable and rare baby fossa pups made their first public appearance at the Chester Zoo.

Born on July 9, the triplets, now 12 weeks old, were spotted on Friday after spending weeks hiding away in their den with their mother, Shala.

The cat-like animals, distant relatives of the mongoose, can only be found in the forests of Madagascar in the wild. The creatures are also rare at the U.K. zoo. The triplets are the first fossas born at the Chester Zoo in the English facility’s 91-year history. The newborns include a male and two females who have yet to be named.
