What kind of animal is Mole?

A mole is a small mammal that belongs to the family Talpidae.

Moles are adapted to a subterranean lifestyle, meaning they live mostly underground.

They have cylindrical bodies, velvety fur, very small eyes and ears, reduced hindlimbs, and short, powerful forelimbs with large paws that are used for digging.

Moles have an extra thumb on each forepaw, which helps them to move soil.

Moles are omnivorous, but they mainly eat earthworms and other small invertebrates that they find in the soil.

Moles can tolerate low levels of oxygen and high levels of carbon dioxide, which allows them to survive in their burrows.

Moles are found in most parts of North America, Europe, and Asia, and they inhabit various habitats, such as grasslands, woodlands, wetlands, and sand dunes.

What is the animal Mole known for?

The animal mole is known for its adaptation to a subterranean lifestyle.
It has a cylindrical body, velvety fur, very small eyes and ears, reduced hindlimbs, and short, powerful forelimbs with large paws adapted for digging.
The word "mole" refers to any species in the family Talpidae, which includes about 42 species of insectivores.

Moles are mostly omnivorous, but they mainly feed on earthworms and other small invertebrates found in the soil.
They have a special form of hemoglobin that allows them to tolerate high levels of carbon dioxide and low levels of oxygen in their burrows.
They also have an extra thumb (also called a prepollex) on each forepaw, which helps them to dig more efficiently.

Moles are sometimes considered as pests by gardeners, because they can damage the roots of plants and create mounds of soil on the surface.
However, moles also provide some benefits to the soil, such as aeration, mixing, and fertilization.
They also serve as prey for other animals, such as owls, foxes, and snakes.

Moles are fascinating animals that have evolved to survive and thrive in their underground habitats.
They have unique features and behaviors that make them different from other mammals.
They are not related to rodents, but to shrews and hedgehogs.
