In response to: [1] [2] - In 2006 there was an understanding that Coetomys is unavailable as a resurrected taxon for the genus split in mole rats, being a junior synonym of Cryptomys. I am editing the wikipedia page for blesmols to reflect the proposed Fukomys genus since it is the only acceptable proposed genus at this time. C. amatus, C. holosericeus, and C. anomalus currently have no English names. --EllisD 02:47, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Do mole rats navigate using the earth's magnetic field?[edit]

According to today's "Did you know..." on the Main Page and Homing (biology), mole rats use the Earth's magnetic field for navigation. Is this true? If so, it's a very interesting fact and should be mentioned.--Hamster128 (talk) 15:45, 14 March 2008 (UTC)
