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.
