Which reminds me of a really bad joke . . .

This guy is out hiking in the high Sierras of California, and by misadventure, falls and breaks his leg while trying to get next to a condor's nest. The condor comes back, and attacks him, perceiving him as a threat. He manages to overpower the bird and wring it's neck. He survives until he is found by eating the bird.

He is taken into Federal court, where the charges are dismissed because of extenuating circumstances. As the court rises, the judge motions him over, and when he approaches the bench, the judge leans over and quietly says: I've always been fond of wild game, what does condor taste like?

Oh, it's kind of like a cross between a bald eagle and a snowy owl.

Quote:
Researchers argue that the olinguito should be considered the smallest living member of the raccoon family,
which includes other animals that make us go "awww" such as coatis and kinkajous.

The Smithsonian describes the olinguito's appearance as a cross between a house cat and a teddy bear.

can you extrapolate based on that info...
