Researchers working in Indonesia discovered a new species of mammal.

They call it the "hog-nosed rat" with features never seen by science before.

The rat features a large, flat, pink nose, similar to a pig's.

It also has extremely large ears, a small mouth, and long white front teeth.

The hog-nosed rat is about the size of a normal rat.
