For years, people on the secluded island of Madagascar told scary stories about a mysterious creature called the fossa. According to some, this vicious killer crept out of the forest at night to steal babies from their cribs. Few people, however, had actually seen this rare animal. Were the stories true? Scientist Luke Dollar was about to find out. In 1996, he set up camp in Madagascar to study these mysterious and misunderstood creatures—and finally learn the truth. In Fossa: A Fearsome Predator, kids follow Dollar as he discovers the secrets of this fascinating, uncommon animal. Large, full-color photos and a narrative format will keep readers turning the pages for more.
