CarlyB is obsessed with animals, especially those animals that don't get a lot of press. So she started the blog Featured Creature, which looks at animals you might not know already. One is the adorable spotted cuscus pictured.
When first discovered, scientists believed that this was a kind of monkey due to its prosimian-like movements through the tropical rain forest canopy. However, it is actually the largest possum on Earth, as well as one of the cutest creatures on Earth if I do say so myself. Males are always spotted but females are white or grey with a woolly coat (but no spots).
See the cuscus in action at the post. Link
I always find it interesting that you get these 'celebrity' species in the animal kingdom like lions and tigers, and there so many species that people have just never heard of.
