Meet the olinguito, Bassaricyon neblina, the first new species of carnivore found in the Western Hemisphere in 35 years! The olinguito lives in high elevation Andean cloud forests of Colombia and Ecuador. It spends most of its time high up in trees and is active at night. Specimens had been in museum cabinets for more than a century, but Smithsonian researchers confirmed its status as a distinct species only recently. More about this species: Image by Mark Gurney (cc-by):

The colonially nesting Roseate Spoonbill is a medium-sized, pink-bodied, ibis-like bird with a flat spatula-shaped bill; these birds are found in the southeastern United States and West Indies through Mexico and Central America to South America, where they are distributed south to northern Argentina east of the Andes and western Ecuador and northwestern Peru west of the Andes.
