How does it feel to know that once you step through to that red carpet you’re gunna be known as Finnick for the rest of your life?

THE GREATEST LESLIE LINE
Are you Team Peeta or Team Gale?
Yeah, but Catching Fire (the book) wasn’t about any of this, and it disappointed me. It was all about Katniss forgetting that she’s the most badass motherfucker in Panem so she could fret about which boy liked her the most. After the phenomenal Hunger Games, I expected so much more from its sequel, and I was sadly smacked about the face with the reality that I’m apparently not in its target demo.
Still, I’m so happy that a generation is seeing and reading it as a call to arms. That’s amazing.
A Real-Life Teddy Bear — The Adorable Baby Olinguito
Scientists trekking deep in Colombia‘s La Mesenia Reserve Forest recently spotted a young olinguito, a mammal that was just confirmed as a new species in August. Scientists say it is the first new carnivore found in the Western Hemisphere in more than three decades.
The new found baby olinguito, discovered by members of the conservation group SavingSpecies, is about the size of a kitten, so small that it can be grasped in one hand. Photographs of the young creature reveal tiny, curved claws that are useful for climbing trees and textured foot pads that help it grip branches.
While only recently designated as a new species, olinguitos have been hiding in plain sight for a long time. Specimens of the orange-brown creature have been housed in museums for more than a century, mistakenly identified as members of a related group of tree-dwelling mammals known as olingos.
An olinguito misidentified as an olingo even lived in U.S. zoos in the 1960s and 1970s, moving frequently because—not surprisingly—the animal wouldn’t breed with olingos.
It wasn’t until 2006 that a team got their first glimpse of live olinguitos in western Ecuador‘s Otanga Cloud Forest Preserve.
Later genetic analysis revealed that olinguitos are not only different from olingos, but also that there are actually four subspecies of olinguitos in existence. Unlike some other newly discovered species, the olinguito does not appear to be at risk of extinction any time soon.
Scientists estimate that there are probably thousands of the incredibly cute creatures living in the protected mountain habitats of Colombia and Ecuador. (via National Geographic)
