They also regularly practice coprophagy, the reingestion of feces, which allows them to maximize their uptake of nutrients from their food.At the Smithsonian's National Zoo, they are fed apples, carrots, corn, green beans, kale and sweet potatoes as well as primate biscuits.Workers are generally raising their siblings, because a single queen may reign for many years.Dispersal is quite rare and inbreeding is common, which results in a high degree of genetic similarity among colony members.In the early days while still performing in the pubs of Bath, England, Pete Byrne, as one half of the synth-pop pioneers Naked Eyes, along with bandmate Rob Fisher, shared a love for the music of Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix.“It was around 1980 that Rob and I formed a band called Neon, that would later include Curt Smith and Roland Orzabal,” says Byrne.Naked mole-rats are eusocial, meaning they live in large colonies in which only one female breeds and the majority of workers (both males and females) spend their entire lives working for the colony. Colony size averages 70 individuals, but colonies of up to 295 have been observed.The animals in these groups are very closely related.
However, soldiers can weigh up to 2 ounces (57 grams), and the queen, who is the largest member of the colony, can weigh up to 2.5 ounces (71 grams).
Naked Eyes are a British new wave band that rose to prominence in the early 1980s.
The band had four US top 40 singles: “Always Something There to Remind Me,” “Promises, Promises,” and “When the Lights Go Out” off their 1983 debut, , and the single “(What) In the Name of Love” in 1984.
The tunnels are about 1.5 inches (4 centimeters) in diameter.
Some tunnels run just under the surface of the ground, while others can be up to 6.5 feet (2 meters) deep.
