Meet The Uglies

All of our Ripley’s Twists are now out as ibooks, including Twists Wild Animals.

Naked Mole-Rat
Good looks don’t matter to these burrowing mammals. They’re nasty to look at, and nasty by nature: males kidnap youngsters from other colonies and keep them as slaves, forcing them to dig new tunnels.

I don’t know about you, but Naked mole rats are probably one of my favorite animals. Creepy little walking sausages that live together like a colony of ants, feel no pain in their skin and have teeth growing on the outside of their lips. What’s not to love?


This page comes right from Twists Wild Animals!

From the clever camouflage of the leaf insect to the bizarre bathing habits of macaque monkeys, and much, much more! Astonishing facts and incredible photographs on every page…all with a lion-sized helping of the weird and wonderful from Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
