Last week, our Naked Mole Rat friends got an expansion added to their tube system, allowing them to venture forward and reach new heights. Literally!
Animal Care staff constructed a test tower, to see how our mole rats would do with exploring “up” instead of their normal “out” on a flat plane. This species is known to have wide spreading tunnel systems that can spread out as far as 6 football fields! Since we don’t have that much space, we decided that they can go up instead and see the world from a new perspective.
We hope to add more chambers to construct a 2nd story tube system, so stay tuned!
