Brief Summary

Read full entry
It is not true that moles are blind, however they are very poor-sighted. They have hefty digging paws, they use to dig underground burrows. The mole is common throughout the Netherlands, with the exception of the Wadden Islands. Although they can swim, the distance to the islands is too far for them.
