Washington D.C. (WSYR-TV) - Scientists at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. have discovered of a new species of mammal.
The cute, furry animal is called an Olinguito (pronounced: oh-lin-ghee-toe).
It's considered a small member of the raccoon family and lives in the treetops of the Andes Mountains.
It has big eyes, red-orange fur, weighs about two pounds and is a little smaller than a house cat.
Researchers found it eats primarily fruits, but also insects and nectar.
The Olinguito is the first mammalian carnivore species to be newly identified in the Americas in 35 years.
Zoologists say it has been seen before in museums and zoos, but has long been mistaken for its sister species, the Olingo.
