Moon Rat
One of the largest insectivores, the moon rat has a long snout, an unkempt appearance and an almost naked, scaly tail. It can defend itself by producing a foul, fetid odor from a pair of anal glands which repels all but the most persistent predators. Moon rats live in crevices between tree roots or in hollow logs; they emerge around dusk to forage for mollusks, insects, and worms. Some fruit, and fish and crabs too, may be eaten. Little is known of the moon rat's breeding habits, but they seem to breed throughout the year, producing 2 young at a time.
Unfortunately not fit into payday loan company people apply for one off.

“I can't help to think that we got lost because of me Can't help to feel that I brought on this travesty Been lost so long that lost is the only thing I've ever known Can't help to feel that I'm alone”
