The Olinguito was discovered in August of this year; a new mammal species, and the first new carnivore discovered in over 30 years, lives in the cloud forests of the western Andes of Colombia.
“Breaking news about the Olinguito: the babies are just as adorable as you’d expect. Paws up, beady eyes, a boopable nose, and ears almost at 9 and 3. Just too cute.” -Angela W. via Saving Species.

Blanket Statement

This bat is the cutest bat we’ve ever seen.

The lazy ear (or as commenter Theresa calls it, “Jeffrey Leonard One Flap Down”), the long and fuzzy muzzle with boopable black end cap and the giant shiny eyes more than qualifies it to be a major player on this website.
