A Naked Mole Rat or Heterocephalus glaber is the worlds longest lived rodent.

They can live upto 28 years. Which is like a human being becoming 3-400 years old.

They cannot feel acid pain and are highly resistant cancer.

The Naked Mole Rat is also one of very few (2?) mammals living like bee's with a queen and workers.

Living underground their diet consists of different kinds of tubers. When they find a big one they only eat a little of it to allow the plant to survive longer and keep giving food.

When they tunnel through especially porous material they use small pieces of plant material behind their teeth to avoid ingesting the earth.

If I remember correctly studies have show they have up to about 21 different kinds of vocalisations meaning they "talk" quite a lot for a mouse sized animal. Among the vocalisations are the "I FOUND FOOD!" chirp and an analogue of chimps grooming eachother chirp.

Did you know those loveable Chimpanzees are actually canibals?

If adult chimps don't get any meat in their diets for a long time, they can and will turn on newborns in the group and kill and eat it.

A 1 year old chimp has the strength of a professional wrestler also.

So maybe not a good idea to keep em as pets especially if you want to feed it veggies and you are planning to start a family with the wife/husband.
