Naked superheroes win award at Wildscreen Festival

22 October 2018

Look down to the ground. Is it a root? Is it a sausage? Is it a hairless hamster? No, it's the naked mole-rat. And they are not called 'Nature's Superheroes' for nothing. They do not get cancer, do not feel pain and their bone structure never degrades. Truly amazing and therefore of great interest to scientists around the world.

The astonishing documentary 'Naked Mole-Rat - Nature's Weirdest Superhero' won the NHK Science Award at Wildscreen Festival last week and we are excited to soon present the little weirdos as part of our catalogue. So stay tuned for a mammal that is more than meets the eye.
