Both the southern short-tailed shrew and the northern short-tailed shrew are found in your area of N. Carolina, but the northern seems to be more widespread and more common. So I'm going with that one. :)

Shrew. See the dainty front feet? A mole would have massive shovel-like front feet for digging. Shrews are also quite a bit smaller than moles.
