These cat-bear-looking creatures of the raccoon family live in the Andean cloud forest of western Colombia and Ecuador. Of course something so unearthly adorable lives in a "cloud forest," a dreamy name for super-foggy tropical canopies. In 2013, the olinguito, pronounced oh-lin-GHEE-toe, became the first newly discovered mammal in 30 years. Kristofer Helgen, curator of mammals at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, was researching the olingo when he opened a drawer at the Chicago Field Museum, Smithsonian Magazine reported. The reddish-brown long-furred skins inside were unlike any he'd ever seen. He and his team set out to scour the world's olingo specimens, finally discovering their missing Olinguito.
