Why God Made Naked Mole Rats
I've always been a fan of naked mole rats. It's true; I've been known to drag friends to our Seattle Science Center so they can join me going ga-ga over these absolutely bizarre and awesome--as in causing true awe--creatures. So I was delighted to find one of my favorite mammals in the news again, this time helping humans avoid cancer.
If you, like me, are captivated by naked mole-rats, you'll love this Smithsonian zoo site, and want to peek at the naked mole-rat cam.
