While new species are found regularly, usually they are tiny things Nike Men's Jackets

Olinguitos are smaller, have shorter tails, a rounder face, tinier ears and darker bushier fur, he said.

The North Carolina museum is already selling olinguito stuffed animals for about $15. Proceeds will benefit habitat preservation for the creatures.

The olinguito is the smallest member of the raccoon family of mammals.

It belongs to a grouping of large creatures that include dogs, cats and bears.

Outside experts said this discovery is not merely renaming something, but a genuine new species with three new subspecies. It's the type of significant find that hasn't happened in the Americas for about 35 years.

"Most people believe there are no new species to discover, particularly of relatively large charismatic animals," said Case Western Reserve University anatomy professor Darin Croft. "This study demonstrates that this is Nike Sweatshirts For Girls Black clearly not the case."

WASHINGTON (AP) Imagine a mini raccoon with a teddy bear face that is so cute it's hard to resist, let alone overlook. But somehow science did until now.

"It looks kind of like a fuzzball . kind of like a cross between a teddy bear and a house cat," Helgen said.

The little zoo critter, named Ringerl, was mistaken for a sister species, the olingo. Before she died in 1976, Ringerl was shipped from zoo to zoo in Louisville, Ky., Tucson, Ariz., Salt Lake City, Washington and New York City to try to get it to breed with other olingos."It turns out she wasn't fussy," Helgen said. "She wasn't the right species."

The discovery is described in a study in the journal ZooKey.

Adorable new mammal species found in plain sight

The critter leaps through the trees of mountainous forests of Ecuador and Colombia at night, according to a Smithsonian researcher who has spent the past decade tracking them.

The researchers only saw olinguitos in Ecuador and Colombia, but they said they could also be living in parts of Panama, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Brazil, Peru, and Guyana, based on their cloud forest habitat.

"It's been kind of hiding in plain sight for a long time" despite its extraordinary beauty, said Kristofer Helgen, the Smithsonian's curator of mammals.

It eats fruit and has one baby at a time. Helgen figures there are thousands of olinguitos in the mountainous forest, traveling through the trees at night which makes them hard to see.

It's hard to figure how olingos and onlinguitos were confused for each other.

Researchers announced Thursday a rare discovery of a new species of mammal called the olinguito. The reddish brown animal is about 14 inches long with an equally long tail Nike Black Hoodie Boys

animals that have hair, live births and mammary glands in females.

"How is it different? In almost every way that you can look at it," Helgen said.

Helgen first figured olinguitos were different from olingos when he was looking at pelts and skeletons in a museum. He later led a team to South America in 2006. "It was almost like it was waiting for us."

But the adorable olinguito (oh lihn GEE' toe) shouldn't have been so hard to find. One of them once lived in the Smithsonian run National Zoo in Washington for a year in a case of mistaken identity.
