New Species Can be Your Next Pet
We're kidding. But it is pretty darn cute.
Meet the cutest and newest creature on the planet.
It has fluffy red-orange fur, a short bushy tail, a rounded face with wide, big, brown eyes.
Say “Hello” to the olinguito, a new species of mammal that has been discovered by scientists at the Smithsonian.
The olinguito has jumped into raccoon family and is a cross between a cat and a teddy bear.
Scientists say the animal might have already been in zoos in the U.S. over the last several decades but they did not know it was a separate species.
The discovery was made in Ecuador and scientists say it is not dangerous.
What is your favorite animal to see at the zoo?
