kaijutegu: the-awkward-turt: Naked mole rats did not get the memo that they are supposed to be mammals and henceforth lost most of their hair, became eusocial, lost the ability to thermoregulate (essentially making them the only “cold blooded” mammal), and slowed their metabolism to the point where they can go without oxygen for a ridiculously long amount of time and live 20-30 years while other similarly sized mammals usually live around 2-3 years. Oh and they are almost entirely immune to cancer. I love these adorable little freaks of nature. also in low-oxygen situations their metabolism switches to something based around fructose like a goddamn plant and they don’t feel pain : Warning: Do NOT get into a breath- holding contest with a naked mole rat bit.ly/2pbo9lf FB@DANK MEMEOLOGY liam @lixmkay that's next weekends plans out the window fucking hell kaijutegu: the-awkward-turt: Naked mole rats did not get the memo that they are supposed to be mammals and henceforth lost most of their hair, became eusocial, lost the ability to thermoregulate (essentially making them the only “cold blooded” mammal), and slowed their metabolism to the point where they can go without oxygen for a ridiculously long amount of time and live 20-30 years while other similarly sized mammals usually live around 2-3 years.

I’m very proud of the European Robin, I think I really captured it.
