New Mammal Identified
And it is adorable! It is called the olinguito, and while the story call is a cross between a teddy bear and a housecat in looks, I do not see the cat part at all. I said "teddy bear face" the instant I saw it on Paul's screen, but what do you all think?
Very cute! I can see why they say related to the racoon!
If you watch the video on this site, at about the 45 - 47 second mark there is a picture of one, so you can see why they say like a cat. Took some searching to find a photo!
Shame that 42% of it's habitat is gone already :( They really are adorable.
How cute! I hope they thrive. :love::love::love::love::love::love::love::love:
Friday's Providence Journal had this article and the photo -- FRONT page, ABOVE the fold, ACROSS THE TOP! ;) Big news!!
If you look just at the body, it does look to me like a cat.
