Foussa


Top level Creatures Creatures from Earth

A small predator from Madagascar.

Foussa (Cryptoprocta ferox)
A small, ferocious, cat like carnivore. Although it does occasionally hunt by day, it is primarily nocturnal. With sharp powerful claws and needle like teeth, it has the ability to seriously wound creatures up to twice its size. Although not a real danger to adult humans, it could be a threat to small children, halflings, ducks and pixies. Its ability to climb extremely fast and jump make it equally dangerous to small flying folk like faeries.

In its native Madagascar, the solitary foussa uses its powerful body and sharp claws to scale trees in search of its favourite prey, lemurs
