In the year since the discovery of the olinguito — a small, furry, tree-dwelling member of the raccoon family, living in the forests of Colombia and Ecuador — the mammal has gone from being literally unknown to being surprisingly well-documented. Zoologist Kristofer Helgen of the Smithsonian Institution joins Jeffrey Brown to discuss how the public has contributed to tracking the olinguito.
