Mole class: Mammal

Moles are the majority of the members of the mammal family Talpidae in the order Soricomorpha. Although most moles burrow, some species are aquatic or semi-aquatic. Moles have cylindrical bodies covered in fur, with small or covered eyes; the ears are generally not visible. They eat small invertebrate animals living underground. Moles can be found almost anywhere in North America, Europe and Asia, although there are no moles in Ireland.

Male moles are called boars; females are called sows. A group of moles is called a labor. By the era of Early Modern English the mole was also known in the British Isle as mouldywarp, a name echoed in other Germanic languages such as Norwegian (muldvarper), Swedish (mullvad) and German (Maulwrfe).

A mole's diet primarily consists of earthworms and other small invertebrates found in the soil. The mole may also occasionally catch small mice at the entrance to its burrow. Because their saliva contains a toxin that can paralyze earthworms, moles are able to store their still living prey for later consumption. They construct special underground larders for just this purpose; researchers have discovered such larders with over a thousand earthworms in them. Before eating earthworms, moles pull them between their squeezed paws to force the collected earth and dirt out of the worm's gut.

The Star-nosed Mole can detect, catch and eat food faster than the human eye can follow (under 300 milliseconds).

Darwin cites moles as an example of mammals that have organs that have become vestigial and are being phased out by natural selection:
