naked mole rat!

I came home from work today and sticking out of one of the holes in my live rock was something that looked like a naked mole rat. I grabbed the camera but the pics didn't come out good. What I could see was about 1/2" long,was a tan color,had 2 antennas on top of its head,several small "hairs" on its body and it acted like a puppy dog just standing up looking around. It was gone a hour later. What in the heck was that?

I got a picture!

Click on the "my gallery". When I came home from work this thing was sticking straight up. Any ideas what it is? I have not seen it since yesterday.
