Scientists at the Smithsonian in Washington have announced the discovery of a new species of mammal called the olinguito (pronounced oh-lin-GHEE-toe)

Researchers argue that the olinguito should be considered the smallest living member of the raccoon family. The Smithsonian describes the olinguito's appearance as a cross between a house cat and a teddy bear.
