Scientists at the Smithsonian in Washington have announced the discovery of a new species of mammal called the olinguito (pronounced oh-lin-GHEE-toe)
If you're a fan of long technical names, this one is Bassaricyon neblina.
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.
At about 2.5 feet long from nose tip to tail tip, the olinguito weighs about 2 pounds and is a little smaller than a house cat.
