Strange Creature Snapped in Seattle



This photo was taken a few days ago outside a Seattle office building. Since then, it's popped up on innumerable websites. Everyone wants to know . . . what the heck IS it? The experts over at Cryptomundo seem to think it's a naked mole rat, but I beg to differ. (Just look at the ears.) Other than that, I have no clue what it might be. Any suggestions?

It could be any animal, just hairless. There are hairless dogs that people can buy.(Great for people with alergies)The best way to figure out what that is would be to compare it to other animals near where the photo was taken and see if it would look like another animal in that area with hair.

It looks a lot like a tiny hairless hippopotomus to me.

I've seen a naked mole rat. They're much thinner, and there skins are peachier. I think it look like a hippo too. It's a mini hippopotous!

It's definetly a cousin of the naked molerat. Or maybe the naked molerat and a hippo had an affair? Supiscious...

On second thought, it's head does look like a hippo. But it's standing like a squirrel.

I think it is a newborn rodent, with a birth defect or chromosome problem. It is naked because at birth, most rodents are hairless and blind, which might be why it has a funny expression
