New Animal Species...Discovered, or Documented?

Reporting that new animal species have been discovered may make it sound as if they've just evolved, giving a suggestion of real scientific support to the pseudo-religious faith in macroevolution this web site loves to debunk. As Liz Klimas' story makes clear, however, the adorable furry creature called the olinguito has been around for a long time; it's just looked like a smaller form of a similar fluffball called the olingo, rather than a distinct species.

You will want to see this critter on video. Even if your computer won't play the video, you'll enjoy the still photos.
