Naked Mole Rats... ugly little things...

My son sent me a photo of a naked mole rat. I thought it had to be a PhotoShop creation... but nope, these little ugly critters really do exist. Luckily for all those of us who live elsewhere, they are native to East Africa. They're ugly, fast, go backwards and forwards and, you can probably figure this out just by looking at the photo, they can't see very well. Those two wite things hanging below its nose are teeth.
I'll pop a couple of links below just in case you'd like to know more. The first link is the best, you probably won't need or want to look at more unless you just simply become obsessed with discovering all there is to know about them...
