Research stemming from the island of Luzon in the Philippines has yielded a breakthrough discovery of two new species of rodents, Rhynchomys labo and R. migan.

Unlike many shrew species that feed on a combination of coconut chunks slathered with peanut butter, both species are drawn to squirming treats in the form of worms.

The rats are believed to have originated from a single ancestor within the mountainous regions of the island. As research continues, experts and legislators attempt to work out a plan to conserve the populations of humans and rodents on the island after decades of disastrous logging activities.
