Date 15 January 2007
Author Ltshears

The naked mole-rat (Heterocephalus glaber), also known as the sand puppy or desert mole rat, is a burrowing rodent closely related to the blesmols, native to parts of East Africa, and is the only species currently classified in the genus Heterocephalus. The naked mole-rat, the Damaraland mole-rat, and Mechow's mole-rat are eusocial mammals. It has a highly unusual set of physical traits that enable it to thrive in an otherwise harsh underground environment; it is the only mammalian thermoconformer. Order: Rodentia, Family: Heterocephalidae, Genus: Heterocephalus, Species: Heterocephalus glaber Rüppell, 1842.
