chrysochloridae

Not enough people know about golden moles. This must be remedied. 

Golden moles are ADORABLE. 

They are also weird as heck. They have no eyes, and many of them don’t even have a bare skin patch over where their eyes would be! They have a third bone in their forearm!  They are not related to normal moles closely at all. They are more closely related to elephants than they are to european moles!  They are from southern africa and are part of the Afrotheria, one of the 4 major mammalian clades.  

THEY ARE ADORABLE AND I WANT ONE ONE DAY AAAAAAA (also they kind of look like tribbles if they get fat :3 )
