For crytpozoologists and mysterious-animal researchers, the recent discovery of a new mammal gives support to the idea that just because we haven’t found a certain creature yet (ie, sasquatch or chupacabra), it doesn’t mean they don’t exist. As observed by Kris Helgen, curator of mammals at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History:
"The discovery of the olinguito shows us that the world is not yet completely explored, its most basic secrets not yet revealed."

[...]The olinguito, a small member of the raccoon family, lives in the treetops of the Andes Mountains.
"You have not seen an animal quite like this before," Helgen said.
The olinguito, or Bassaricyon neblina, is from the olingo family, a bushy-tailed tree-dwelling carnivore.
It features big eyes and orange-brown fur and weighs about 2 pounds. It is also a carnivore, but eats fruits such as figs as well as insects and plant nectar.
Helgen said his team discovered the animal living in the canopy of the tall trees in the mountains of Colombia and Ecuador.
He said the species "was completely overlooked by all zoologists until now."
Helgen said his team first saw the animal in the Andes in 2006 and have been constructing its family history ever since.
