New Mammal Found - 1st in 35 years!

Caption: The olinguito (Bassaricyon neblina) is the first carnivore species to be discovered in the Western Hemisphere in 35 years.    I love the fact that a new mammal has just been found! 

Even though humans tend to think we "know" everything and "have seen it all" - we are reminded that there are things near - and far - that we are still new to us in Creation!

From National Geographic:  Newly Discovered Carnivore Looks Like Teddy Bear.  In "incredibly rare" find, scientists discover animal in Andean cloud forests.
