Olinguito Discovery Press Conference

Dr. Roland Kays presents a new species of mammal called the olinguito. The olinguito (oh-lin-GHEE-toe) looks like a cross between a house cat and a teddy bear. It is actually the latest scientifically documented member of the family Procyonidae, which it shares with raccoons, coatis, kinkajous and olingos. (Olinguito means “little olingo.”) More information about the olinguito here.
