Mole "Alwin", lying

Product 18 of 58

Almost everyone knows them, but some lawn owners dislike them: The hills that moles (Talpidae) leave. These hills consist of the earth that the mole pushes aside while digging the tunnel system. At some places it throws the soil onto the ground, building the typical hills. As the mole is able to dig up to 20 meters (22 yards) per day sometimes several of these hills appear almost suddenly. This happens inwork shift: for 4 hours the mole digs, hunts and feeds itself; the next 4 hours it's sleeping.
Though many find them disruptive, having a mole in the own garden is a good sign. Feeding of several vermin like larvae or cockchafer grubs and chasing away voles, the mole actually helps to protect the plants in the garden. Their digging helps as well to aerate the soil.
Moles are perfectly adapted to the underground life. They have a rather bad eyesight which is not needed in the darkness. In return they have gotten excellent hearing and smelling senses, furthermore their whiskers help them to orientate.

Normally moles are mavericks, only during mating time they come together. Luckily our mole is more gregarious. It enjoys living together with others, for example with his sitting fellow "Erwin" (Kö-F4410, see photos 3 and 4) or when small or big children pet his soft fur.
