Basically, Nannospalax differs from Spalax by the presence of supracondyloid foramina above the occipital condyles of the skull, two enamel islands on the chewing surface of the third upper molar (M3), three rooted upper molars, and the anterior surface of the upper incisors has two longitudinal ridges (Nehring, 1898; Ellerman, 1940; Ellerman and Morrison-Scott, 1951; Topachevskii, 1969; Mursaloglu, 1979; Nevo et al., 1988; Coskun, 1994).

The new study demonstrated just how cancer-resistant Spalax are, and suggests that the adaptations that help these rodents survive in low-oxygen environments also play a role in their longevity and cancer resistance.

Fossorial rodents are represented in the cold deserts of South America by the tuco-tuco (Ctenomys, family Ctenomyidae); in North America by the pocket gophers (Geomyidae); and in the cold Asiatic deserts and subdeserts by the mole-voles (Ellobius, family Cricetidae **) and the mole-rat (Spalax giganteus, family Spalacidae **).

Later in the book, for example, King describes a well-known case in which ethological and physiological differences have been established between hybridizing chromosomal races, despite the absence of "genic" change (the Spalax ehrenbergi complex, p.
Another highly fossorial rodent, the blind mole rat (Spalax), has an outer layer of radial enamel even thicker than that of Thomomys (Flynn et al., 1987).
The present review indicated the existence of 73 distinct chromosome races recorded in blind mole rats classified within the genus Nannospalax, along with the seven species recognized within the genus Spalax. In total, 12 distinct diploid numbers of chromosomes were reported (2n = 36-62); and variation in chromosome morphologies was observed between populations with the same number of chromosomes (NF = 62-124).
