This world always has surprises in store for us, no matter how old it is. Recently, scientists found one of these little gifts in the form of a new mammal species called the olinguito, and it's one of the most indescribably cute creatures we have ever seen. That got us thinking: What other adorably weird and wondrous creatures are out there?
Habitat: Forests of the Andes
Fun Fact: This newly discovered critter is the first mammal species found in over 35 years. The animal is furrier and smaller than any other creature in its genus.
