What’s Pink and Tubular?

Naked Mole Rats! (Of course.)

The Smithsonian’s National Zoo recently acquired a baby Giant Pacific Octopus and touted its OctopusCam in press releases. It turns out that the zoo has a whole load of live animal cams, including ferrets, gharials, and Naked Freakin’ Mole Rats.







Many of the other cams look out onto empty space much of the time when the animal is elsewhere in its enclosure, but the NMR cam seems to nearly always be aswarm with the squirmy critters. If you need a little lift during the day, go take a peek at ’em.

Now we just need to figure out whom to lobby to get a webcam in the bat enclosure.

(Title shamelessly stolen from this Pharyngula post, where the comments are also highly entertaining.)
