Scientists found a new species on the French island of Corsica. It is a "cat-fox". Scientists found sixteen cat-foxes in the mountains. One cat-fox was 90 centimeters long. It has wide ears, a thick coat, and striped front legs. The local government said it was "a wonderful discovery". It said Corsica was a paradise for animals.

The cat-fox was a mythical animal. Farmers told stories about it. People are happy their island has a new species. Scientists think it came from Africa, perhaps as long ago as 6500BC. A scientist said: "It's close to the African forest cat." Scientists need to look at its DNA to find out more about it.
