Illustrating the 'discovery process' in science

Here's a fascinating news report that illustrates (and perhaps even explains a bit about) the 'process of discovery' in science - as opposed to the 'processes of religion'; some (not all) of the 'theories of education'; etc:

"Carnivore 'teddy bear' emerges from the mists of Ecuador" - http://www.theguardian.com/science/2013/aug/15/teddy-bear-olinguito-ecuador-carnivore .

No claim is being made for or against the process of 'discovery teaching or learning' (or anything at all). It's just a story that I found most interesting.

By the way, the 'carnivore teddy bear' eats mainly fruit: sometimes scientific terms mean something rather different from what they may mean in 'lay language'.
