First, what on Earth is a Naked Mole Rat?

Naked Mole Rats are small rodents that live in underground tunnels in Eastern Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia).

What's so interesting about them?

Well, Naked Mole Rats are almost entirely hairless (though they have hair in their mouths), they dig tunnels up to 1.8 miles (3 km) long...with their teeth, and they are the only known mammals that live in colonies with a Queen (like honey bees and other social insects)! Now that's what we call interesting!

If you see a photo but don't see any Naked Mole Rats, look closely, because its quite dark in the tunnel and they tend to blend in. If you still don't see any of the little fellas, they're probably somewhere else in the colony doing whatever Naked Mole Rats do when out of sight.
