Did I Really Need To Know That?

Unusually among placental mammals, the anus and urogenital tracts of tenrecs share a common opening, or cloaca, a feature more commonly seen in birds, reptiles, and amphibians. They have a low body temperature, sufficiently so that they do not require a scrotum to cool their sperm as most other mammals do.

Does this mean some things are weirder than me?


  1. Too much information, Ronald..... LOL!

    Wishing you a warm, peaceful and happy Christmas.

  2. I thought it was appropriate for the Season (whatever that may be). The little critter is a cousin to the aardvark, another animal I don't know shit about, though I at least would have recognized an aardvark!!!


Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
