The Hotheaded Naked Ice Borer is a small mole-like mammal and a gregarious predator discovered by Aprile Pazzo during an Antarctic research exploration in along the remote coast of the Ross Sea of Antarctica. Bearing a forward cranial projection rich in blood vessels which gets heated enough to allow it to melt the surrounding ice; the Ice Borer lurks underground in groups and attacks prey from below by melting the ice away and letting the unfortunate targets sink in, directly into the voracious jaws of the attackers. Its victims range from penguins to unsuspecting explorers. It has been proposed that Philippe Poisson, who disappeared mysteriously in Antarctica in , might have had such fate.

Hotheaded Naked Ice Borers (April Fool, )

Folger wrote several other April Fool stories for the magazine, including a basketball-sized particle named the "bigon", [2] and the discovery of prehistoric musical instruments— rhinoceros bladder bagpipes, a mastodon-tusk tuba, and a bone triangle—supposedly used by Neanderthals. The article carried a purported photo of a Naked mole rat-like creature with a bony growth protruding from its head. According to the article, this animal had recently been discovered in Antarctica. The bony structure was suffused with tiny blood vessels that would heat it to a temperature high enough to melt through the ice. To acquire food, a group of these animals would burrow into the ice underneath suitable prey, and use their heads to melt through. When the animal, usually a penguin , sank helplessly into the water, the group of Borers would devour it.

THE HOT-HEADED NAKED ICE BORER

Back to Main Page. Aprile Pazzo, a noted wildlife biologist, had found a fascinating new Antarctic species: the hotheaded naked ice borer. These bizarre creatures were each about half a foot long, very light, and had a bony plate attached to their head that could become burning hot, allowing them to bore tunnels through ice at high speeds. They used this ability to hunt penguins. Packs of them would melt the ice beneath a penguin causing it to sink into the slush, at which point the borers would surround the hapless creature and consume it.
