Moles are small mammals with velvety fur, small eyes and ears, small hindlimbs, and powerful forelimbs with large paws positioned for digging. A mole’s diet consists of earthworms and other small invertebrates found in the soil, and a variety of nuts. The underground “mole runs” are in reality ‘worm traps’, the mole sensing when a worm falls into the tunnel and quickly running along to kill and eat it. As our backyard’s organic status matures, its inhabitants become more abundant and diverse. A tiny mole portends big change.
