About the mole:
The common mole is a small burrowing mammal about 6 to 8 inches in length. With a long, tapering snout, a lack of external ears and barely detectable eyes moles are not the most beautiful of animals. Typical moles have rounded bodies covered with soft fur and exhibit sharply pointed muzzles. Although moles lack external ears they have highly acute hearing. Moles possess a keen sense of touch at the ends of their noses and tails. Their small eyes are covered with a thin membrane which is sensitive to changes in light but provides little visual precision. Moles have powerful legs and broad front feet which are ideal for tunneling. They are equipped with enormous digging claws. The moles shovel-like front feet are well adapted to digging through any type of soil. They can move backwards nearly as rapidly as they move forwards. Most moles are good swimmers and some, such as the star-nosed mole, thrive in wetlands. Moles tunnel just below the surface of the ground, where they forage for food. Moles are voracious eaters consuming over half their weight daily. Their diet consists of earthworms, insects, and root vegetation. Moles can dig about 75 feet of tunnels in a day.Their tunnels make characteristic ridges and mounds in gardens and lawns. Deeper burrows are used for living and pup rearing. A group of moles is called a labor of moles. Their young are normally born in the spring after five weeks gestation and consist of three to eight pups. In spring and summer months moles expand their territory as new additions require expanded habitat. How tunnels multiply: Moles build a nest burrow and several tunnels branching off from it. From these main tunnels, deeper underground, moles dig several side tunnels which rise towards the surface. Further temporary tunnels are dug from side tunnels. These tunnels are what the mole uses to look for food. Temporary tunnels are just under the surface of the soil. Moles seldom reuse temporary tunnels preferring to dig new ones in their voracious search for food. In your yard or garden you are most likely to encounter dirt raised above ground level which look like ridges. This is certain evidence of mole activity.
