Terrance the Tenrec

Common tenrec, also known as tailless tenrec, is a type of mammal with unusual characteristics. This creature lives on the Madagascar and on the nearby islands. Unlike other mammals, common tenrec does not have separate openings for excretion of urine, feces and reproductive fluids. Instead the tenrec excretes all these products via single opening called "cloaca".
