Back from first season of field work with the mole rats

I got back from the Kuruman River Reserve (KRR) and Kuruman Research Centre (KRC) about two weeks ago. This was my first but definitely not the last field season of my PhD.

One can read about the mole rats and watch movies on youtube – but it doesn’t give them justice! They are truly fascinating animals and so much fun to work with in the field. I am so exciting for the next years where I will literarily be digging my way to deeper understanding of their benefits and consequences of group living!
