Moles are fossorial or underground dwelling mammals. They dig tunnels in which they forage on subterranean invertebrates. Moles have evolved notable adaptations for their underground lifestyle. Their bodies are streamlined, the eyes are tiny, the legs are short, and external ears are lacking. The forelimbs, armed with large flat claws, are positioned for powerful digging movements.
