Naked Mole Rat - Lincoln Park Zoo


A naked mole rat, I am named.
Naked cuz I have little hair.
Mole cuz I am a digger famed.
Rat cuz of rodent stuff I share.
My large protruding teeth do dig
Bunches of burrows underground.
Family huddles are a big
Warmer upper if cold abound.
We're eusocial like ants and bees.
Rare for a mammal to live thus.
Eat plants, then again as feces.
Efficiency experts - that's us.

My digs are at Lincoln Park Zoo.
Come for a visit - yes please do.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
