The average lifespan of a cheetah is 8-12 years, so Sarah lived a very long life — but it was all about what she did with that life that's making headlines!

In 2009, she set the world speed record for land mammals, when she was clocked sprinting 100 meters in just 6.13 seconds!

For a frame of reference: the fastest human in the world, Usain Bolt, set the mark at that same distance for people at 9.58 seconds, so Sarah was FAST!

The amazing cheetah got going as fast as 61 miles per hour on that record-setting run — but she wasn't done yet!

Science Discovers New Mammal Species! Hello Olinguito!

Filed under: Science!Cuteness!Amazing

Science discovered a new mammal species: the Olinguito!

Wow! We had no idea this kind of thing even happened anymore!

We know science is always discovering new insect species and things like that and we totes understand.

Bugs are tiny, hard to spot and super gross, so we can see how there are so many more to discover.

But a mammal? A whole mammal??

That's right! The Olinguito looks like a small raccoon with the face of a teddy bear! It's so cute! How did no one recognize it earlier??

Basically, they're only just over a foot-long, live in the tops of trees in the mountainous woods of Ecuador and Colombia and are nocturnal. So they're not too easy to spot.

What's funny is one actually was at the Smithsonian-run National Zoo in Washington for a whole year, but its identity was mistaken! So funny!

Our favorite part is it's a carnivore but it eats mostly fruit! So it's compassionate too! LOLz!

What a cute little sweetie! Welcome to the world of science, Olinguito!
