Well played, cats. You've gone and crossed yourselves with teddy bears. Now how are we supposed to resist staring at your cuddly wuddly faces all day long?
Meet the olinguito (pronounced: oh-lin-GHEE-toe). This new species was discovered by Smithsonian scientists who describe these animals as "a cross between a house cat and a teddy bear." Be still our hearts.
It's been about 35 years since a new carnivore species has been discovered in the Americas, according to the Smithsonian.
This little guy, who weighs 2 pounds and has wooly eyes and orange-brown fur, is native to the cloud forests of Ecuador and Colombia. He shares the family Procyonidae with raccoons, coatis, kinkajous and olingos.
Scientists knew about him before, but it was only recently that they were able to determine he is distinct from similar mammals. Distinctly adorable.
