Researchers have discovered a new adorable animal, the olinguito. Kristofer Helgen, the Smithsonian's curator of mammals*, describes the olinguito in scientific terms as "...kind of a fuzzball...kind of like a cross between a teddy bear and a house cat."

Will this new mammal overtake such beloved fuzzballs as the fennec fox, the sloth and the kitten in the hearts and minds of the internet? Only time and gifs will tell.
