They are so goofy looking! I luff them.

The mole rats are about five blocks from my house, and I often pass them while cutting through the Zoo on my way to the neighborhood on the west side of it.

I've long wondered what went on down there, and am pleased if a little surprised to see it's much as I imagined: sniffing, eating peppers and radishes, and bonking into each other.

The Pacific Science Center in Seattle also has a naked mole rat cam, though not as nicely close up as this one!

I love naked mole rats so much. They're like sentient potatoes. I could watch the naked mole rat camera all day.

I'd question whether naked mole rats are ever really SFW, since they remind me strongly of penises with fangs, but the Smithsonian one is currently having a great old time eating what looks like a piece of sweet potato, so it's cool.
