Fascinating

Was looking up golden moles and followed a link to tenrecs and found this gem:

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

Evolution blows my mind!

And both of these wittle animals are adorable. FYI
