Naked mole rats are some of the most fascinating creatures at LSC. Did you know they have the strongest jaw muscles of any mammal their size? So, using their powerful teeth, the mole rats have chewed through LSC’s ticket prices, resulting in a $5 discount on all tickets purchased online for the month of March.

Be sure to thank the mole rats in person during your visit! And why not use this time to brush up on some of their most amazing characteristics:
~Mole rats can live for up to 30 years, which is extremely long for an animal of their size.
~They are practically immune to cancer, which makes them a fascinating subject for scientists. They also have a high tolerance to pain and low oxygen levels.
~About 25% of their musculature is in their jaw, which is nearly the same amount of musculature in a human being’s legs.
~Much like bees and leaf-cutter ants (who also reside at LSC!), mole rats live in a colony with a queen breeding all the offspring.
