Foreigners can also volunteer with Earthwatch to help track lemurs or radio-collar Madagascar's lynx-like fossa .
Brad Bailey joined an Earthwatch group tracking the endangered fossa cat in Madagascar, making a 30-minute film based on his experience.
It was also home to animals that preyed on lemurs, among them the large, catlike fossa , which I was to encounter many times.
A catlike civet known as a fossa prowls the rain forest of Madagascar's Ranomafana National Park.
Could the fossa be a link between the marsupial and the mammals without pouches?
They occupy the ovarian fossae on the lateral pelvic wall.
He has trapped fossas , examined them thoroughly and equipped some with radio collars to track their activities once they are back in the wild.
Radio collars reveal how far fossas range (up to 25 kilometers or 16 miles a day).
Older children and adults experience ‘hot and sweaty fossae and folds’ involving flexor surfaces such as the antecubital and popliteal fossae , as well as the flexor wrists and ankles.
The explanation for the strange appearance of fossas and other Madagascar animals goes back some 160 million years ago in geologic time.
