Fossa Football

While on holiday in North Italy, during a visit to a zoo I caught on my mobile this fossa practicing world class nutmegs and dribbling skills. Fredrich the fossa, as he’s been named, is given a ball for excercise training and enrichment to keep him inquisitively active and healthy.

This carnivorous mammal closely related to the mongoose family, but quite resemblent of a cat, is native to Madagascar.  As the largest predator of the island they are capable of hunting all the indigenous mammals, including the well known lemurs.  Being able to catch prey in the trees and on the ground, while also hunting through all hours of the day make this a persistant and formidable hunter.

The new way to protest

People dancing to Scream & Shout by Will.i.am outside the town hall in Manchester.  This was done in protest against council cuts resulting in the shutting down of the Levenshulme library.

This was filmed on a mobile so apologies for the poor sound & shaky video.
