The fossas eat lemurs the most. Lemurs are the fossas’ main p​ rey​. The fossas
eat more than just lemurs though. The fossas would eat everything that comes
in their way when they have hunger. They sneakily go up to the food and eats
them. But what they usually eat are lemurs (their main prey), lizards, mice,
birds, and wild pigs.
Fossas are ​carnivores​ and are p​ redators.​ Fossas would come into any animal
that they see or wants to eat, especially when they give hunger. No animals
that are near fossas ever tried to go on eat or hunt them down. The fossas live
in remoted, forested areas. The fossas also spend a lot of time in the trees and
the ground. The fossas have some, very f​ lexible​ parts of their body so that they
could climb up the trees. The fossas are very s​ tealthy​ carnivores. They are
very stealthy carnivores by sneakily going up to the prey and gets them. They
eat the animal after. The fossas are always near rocks because they sometimes
hide behind the rocks. The fossas hide behind the rocks because they are the
most stealthy carnivore. The fossas live in Madagascar. People say that the
animal fossas are the king of Madagascar. Fossas are known that they are
very similar to cats. The fossas’ cousins’ are the mongoose. Mongooses are
similar animals with fossas.


The fossas’ ​ecosystem ​is taiga. The taiga is a biome forest. At 
taiga there are different times and the times have different 
seasons which could change the weather a lot. In fact it does from 
the other seasons and Winter. At Winter in taiga and it is cold it 
would snow. When it is winter at taiga the temperature would be 
around 60-degrees or exactly 60-degrees. This isn’t quite common 
for the ecosystem taiga, but taiga could be dry. But mostly when 
it is another season the weather would be rainy, and rain. The 
taiga mostly snows. It still could be quite dry sometimes. But when 
it is summer the temperature would be 21 degrees. But it would 
only be about the things that fall from the cloud that it is when it 
would be the rain at summer and always snow at the winter. So 
that means it is only for when it is something that falls from the 
clouds or the sky. In the ecosystem taiga there are plenty and 
plenty of evergreen trees. The evergreen trees never let the trees 
go down. Even when the season is Winter the leaves wouldn’t fall 


In the energy transfer there are food webs, food chains, and food pyramids. The food web for 
the fossas’ ecosystem taiga has a lot of animals. These are the animals in the fossas’ 
ecosystem, food chain: Fossas and fanaloka are the first in the food chain. Than it just keeps on 
going until the end. So then it’s lemurs, then frogs, then yellow caterpillar, then fruits producer, 
then the pill millipede, then red hibiscus, then uroplatus, then fern, then fungi, then hissing 
cockroach. For the food chain it is pretty similar to food web and food pyramid. 

The picture on the left is the ecosystem taiga food chain. That was all for the food chain.  

This picture is the taiga food pyramid. It starts with humans, wolves, fishes, coyotes, grizzly 
bears, black bears, and lynx. The second is owls, arctic fox, red fox, weasels, marten, sables, and 
fishers. Third are red squirrel, snowshoe hares, grouse, woodland caribou, moose, voles, shrews, 
lemunings, and beavers. Fourth is arboreal lichens, berries, mosses, dwarves, willows, wild lily of 
the valley, shinleaf, twinleaf, aspen, and paper birch. 



There are things called invasive species. Invasive species are animals that move 
to another different place that they don’t belong and makes all the animals 
become e​ ndangered​ or ​extinct​ (sometimes about the part about being 

endangered or extinction). There are a lot of invasive species in the ecosystem 
taiga. One of the invasive species are atlantic salmons. They are a type of fish. 
Another are caribous. Caribous are deers and they are an invasive species in the 
ecosystem taiga. Caribous live near gracial rivers. Next comes black bears are 
other invasive species in the fossas’ ecosystem taiga. Red foxes are also invasive 
species in the ecosystem. Cranberry, roses, black spruce, and white spruce are 
types of flowers and plants and they are invasive species in taiga. Lynxes which 
are like cats but wild cats are invasive species in taiga. Loons that are birds and 

are like ducks are the final invasive species in taiga that I found. 

The over consumptions are animals that are overpopulated. The over 
consumptions around where fossas live are wolverines. Wolverines need food 
and it is always getting it near the fossas. Wolverines are predators that hunt all 
the food so that is why they are over consumptions. Wolverines hunt caribous so 
that is why wolverines are over consumptions and caribous are invasive species. 
Elks are over consumptions and they are types of deers. Elks are preys but they 

defend​ themselves. That is why they are over consumptions. 


The fossas defend themselves by being good carnivores and having the good
abilities of biting and scratching to defend themselves. The fossas sneakily
catch their food so that they can live. They have their sharp teeth and their
strong claws to catch their prey and eat them and hunt them and do all the
carnivorous​ things. They have flexible skills so that they could climb up trees
and go around rocks and hide around. That was all about the fossas.
