Broad-footed Mole

Scapanus latimanus


This mole is uniformly brown with a lighter tinge on its belly. It has large broad forepaws for digging.


Grassy patch in an empty creek bed.


I found this interesting creature dead unfortunately. It had been raining a few days before, maybe it was drowning in its burrow.
