Anatomy: Moles have tiny eyes and are virtually blind. They have an acute sense of touch which is aided by sensory bumps on the snout, sensory whiskers on the face, and sensory hairs on the feet and tail. Moles range in size from 2 to 9 inches (5 to 23 cm) long with a 1 to 9 (3 to 23 cm) inch long tail. Moles have shovel-shaped, five-toed, thick-clawed feet that are very efficient at burrowing. Many moles have a long, powerful tail.
Diet: The mole is classified as an insectivore (insect-eater); it eats its own weight in food each day. Moles eat insects, earthworms, mice, fish, frogs, small crustaceans, and other small animals. Moles find prey mainly by using their sense of touch.
