Weird Looking Saber-tooth Rat Mole

The Naked Mole Rat (Looks like a smaller version of a Walrus) is a weird digging rodent which can be found in East Africa. They have highly unusual set of physical traits that enables it to thrive in an otherwise harsh, underground environment, including a lack of pain sensation in its skin and a very low metabolism. Just take one look at this thing is enough to say “ That’s the ugliest rat on the planet” There’s a fact!

 

They are 8 – 10 cm long and weigh 30 – 35 of grams. Walrus Rats, I mean mole rat’s eyes are quite small, and their visual acuity is poor. These poor rats can’t catch a break. Bald, huge teeth, wrinkled and live in a whole. Also their legs are thin and short however, they highly adept at moving underground and can move backward as fast as they can move forward. There not all that bad after all! Don’t worry, they don’t feed on human necks. They feed on Tubers, A single tuber can provide a colony with a long-term source of food—lasting for months, or even years, as they eat the inside but leave the outside, allowing the tuber to regenerate. If their food supplies are low then they will eat there feces. Yummy… :-\
