The “House of Knowledge” is like a collection of stories. Beautiful stories that tell the living in all its freshness. But also, in all its complexities. Arch to marvel at the world’s treasures. In this new episode, let’s go back to Africa and meet an amazing rodent: the naked mole rat.
The. It is a funny animal. Kind of a giant mouse that lives underneath From the arid regions of Ethiopia and south of the Sahara. No hair. Too small . Large incisors. In short, a One can easily get caught up in being ugly.
However, researchers are very interested in mole rats. Because her skin heals amazingly quickly. Because it is almost. Because it looks resistant to . Or because it shows no sign of aging. Until the day before his death!
At the heart of the dialect culture is female
But how did the researchers find outOn the strange noises that naked mole rats make? By recording more than 36,000 tweets over a period of two years. Then by analyzing the acoustic properties of these sounds using an algorithm.
The idea of dialect communication seems somewhat clever when you learn that food can run out on the dry plains where the naked mole rat lives. Thus, all the rodents in the colony work in harmony, each according to their rank, to fulfill the role assigned to them.
Because the researchers confirmed that, too. Naked mole rats know how to distinguish their colony accent from another colony accent. And she is there “the Queen” The colony – the only breeding female in the group – is responsible for maintaining the integrity of each tone. Understand the mechanisms that support, in Cleanliness can shed light on the development of this type of culture among us as humans. Because the funny This communication system has developed much before us. Not stupid, naked mole rat!Naked mole rats, this one
