New carnivorous mammal species found in Madagascar
"This just shows how much biodiversity Madagascar is still throwing at us,"

A new species of carnivorous mammal has been discovered in Madagascar.
Scientists found the creature in the wetlands of Lake Alaotra, the largest lake in Madagascar.
Its marsh habitat is under pressure from invasive species and pollution, and the team thinks it could be one of the world's most threatened mammals.
