Moles have a unique ability to construct special underground”larders” for the just purpose of keeping food such as earthworms.
Did you know that researchers have found such larders containing over a million earthworms in them?
Did you know that a mole’s diet primarily consists of earthworms and other tiny invertebrates found in the soil in addition to many different nuts?
It’s been found that Moles have the ability to re-use the oxygen they have inhaled when above ground.
Because moles are able to re-use the oxygen they have inhaled when above ground, they could survive in low-oxygen environments like underground burrows.
It has been said that Moles are found to be resistant to high levels of carbon dioxide in comparison to other mammals that are in the world today.
The main reason for moles being resistant to high levels of carbon dioxide is because their blood has a special and exceptional sort of haemoglobin protein found in their blood cells.
Their eyes are rather small and are kept covered just enough so that they can see where nevertheless are going, tell day from night, as well as kept shielded whilst they’re tunneling otherwise they’re mostly very poor sighted.You’ll discover that moles are the dominant members of the mammal family, that’s the Talpidae family in the order of Soricomorpha.
Scientists have noted the Star-nosed Mole can detect, catch and eat food faster than the human eye could follow which is under 0.3 seconds.
