Organism ImageHeterocephalus glaber (naked mole-rat)

The naked mole-rat is the longest-lived rodent and an interesting model for research on longevity, cancer resistance, and the ability to survive in hostile environments.

Lineage: Eukaryota[8697]; Metazoa[4225]; Chordata[2098]; Craniata[2075]; Vertebrata[2075]; Euteleostomi[2058]; Mammalia[637]; Eutheria[463]; Euarchontoglires[180]; Glires[114]; Rodentia[108]; Hystricomorpha[23]; Bathyergidae[2]; Heterocephalus[1]; Heterocephalus glaber[1]
The naked mole-rat is a hairless rodent native to tropical grasslands of East Africa. It is the longest-lived rodent with a lifespan exceeding thirty years. Naked mole-rats are eusocial organisms, resistant to a variety of cancers, insensitive to certain types of pain, and adapted to life in harsh locales, including low oxygen and high carbon dioxide More...
