But apparently a super liver is not enough to guarantee a win, which instead went to, with 46% of your votes...
*shudder* I keep on thinking about how creepy it would be to accidentally touch on of those things... or even worse, if one, say, fell into the bathtub with you!
However, it is the winner, and thus deserves a little celebration. Thus, I present to you some random naked mole rat facts (with creepy photos to help you get to sleep tonight):
Not only do these creatures, as afore mentioned, feel no pain and move quickly in reverse-- they also dig with their teeth, and, as such, their lips seal behind their teeth to avoid filling their mouths with dirt... hence that charming toothy grin!
They also are virtually cold-blooded, unlike all other mammals, as they cannot regulate their body temperature. As such, they are restricted to locales with very consistent temperature. Specially, they are mostly found in the grasslands of East Africa.
The social system of the naked mole rat resembles that of bees and ants, rather than other mammals, in that within a colony of mole rats, only one female (known as the queen) and one to three males mate, whereas the rest of the colony members serve primarily as workers. Besides for one other form of mole rat, no other mammal species have this form of social system.
The naked mole rats primary diet? Giant tubers only found underground... and their own feces.
Speaking of ugly animals... look what greeted me as I came home tonight:
On a totally unrelated tangent, when I pulled out my umbrella from my bag today and opened it, right in the middle of it was a penny. Doesn't a penny in an umbrella sound like it would be a good omen by the standard of an old wives tale or something... you know, something shiny and surprising while preparing for a rainy day?
I feel like I could always use an extra dose of luck, so I'm rolling with it.
