I’m in a coding frenzy today, working on the reboot of the LGF front page; been trying out ideas for months now, and I think I’ve finally got something I like. So here are some orangutans who seem pretty well-adjusted, and a thread that is open, while I wrestle with the design.

Naked Mole Rat Puppies. Need I say more?

Photo Credit: Zoo Budapest

Nearly hairless and covered in wrinkly pink skin, Naked Mole Rats are one of only two mammal species known to be eusocial - they live in highly organized societies similar to those of ants, termites, or bees. The only female in a colony to reproduce is known as the queen, and only a few males breed with her. The rest of the colony assumes roles as workers. They obtain food and maintain the complex system of underground tunnels in which the Naked Mole Rats live.
