Welcome to the world of the naked mole rat! Many readers may never have heard of this nocturnal creature. As a burrowing, eusocial mammal, the naked mole rat spends its time in the dry lands of eastern Africa. A chapter on the naked mole rat's body discusses its size, appearance, and special features, including its nearly hairless body, tiny ears and eyes, wrinkly, loose skin, and huge incisors. Other chapters cover its diet, life cycle, and habitat, including a map. The naked mole rat's colony organization, including the queen, soldiers, and workers, is also explained. Predators are introduced, along with threats to the naked mole rat's environment and conservation efforts that are in place.
