hot naked mole rat action
For the fast few days, ever since seeing them at the zoo, I have been thinking a lot about naked mole rats.

You will be, too, after reading this article about them. They are mammals, yet are cold-blooded, and have social systems very much like those of certain bees or ants -- one "queen," who's the only female who gets to breed, and lots of workers. And they are funny looking, and they eat their own poo. Freaky little things.

oh yes, and they all sleep together in a big naked-mole-rat pile.
