Talpa europaea - Mole

Observed: 28th July 2012 By: WilHeeneyWilHeeney’s reputation in MammalsWilHeeney’s reputation in Mammals

Sadly this mole was found dead on the road in one piece so I couldn't resist posing the little fellow. His demise shall not go wasted as now the long wait for him to break down begins... Then I shall have a full mole skeleton... Woop Woop.

good idea

I thought it looked real so will pretend that you were really lucky to get a photo of it emerging from the soil.

Mole photos

Apparently most mole photos are of dead, 'posed' animals.

Mole skull

Lucky you, I found an excellent mole skull the other day and, rather daftly, left it on the table instead of putting it away in my collection cupboard - my dog pinched it off the table and ate it.
