Moles insectivores small and medium sizes: body length from 5 to 21 cm; weight from 9 to 170. They (except shrews living on the surface) are adapted to an underground, burrowing way of life. Their body is elongated, round, covered with thick, even, velvety fur. The moleht fur coat has a unique property: the pile grows directly, and is not oriented in the specific direction. This allows the mole to move easily under the ground in any direction, the pile loosely lies both forward and backward. The color of the mole is monophonic, brow, black-brown or dark-gray. The limbs are shortened, the paws are shovel-like widened; Claws large, flattened from above. Hind legs are usually weaker than the forelimbs. The tail is short. Head small, elongated. The nose is extended into the movable proboscis. The neck outside is almost invisible. The auricles are absent or very small. Vision in moles is weak; in some species the eyes are covered with skin. Well developed sense of smell and touch.
Skull long, conical, with very thin cheek arches. Teeth from 33 to 44. The number and structure of the teeth is used in the determination of moles. Vertebrae: cervical 7, thoracic 1314, lumbar 56, sacral 56, caudal 827. Bones, especially the shoulder girdle, are broad and strong. The clavicle articulates directly to the humerus (in other mammals with a scapula scion). The pelvic bones are long and narrow. The males have a baculum.
Moles inhabit different landscapes, preferring, however, terrain with moist soils, easy for digging. Most species lead an underground lifestyle, digging tunnels and feeding underground invertebrates and, more rarely, parts of plants. Due to the special structure of the front paws, adapted for digging and raking the soil sideways and backwards, many moles move only crawling on the surface. Some species in the search for food come to the surface or lead a terrestrial lifestyle. 24-hour or twilight-night activity. Because of the high metabolic rate characteristic of all insectivores, moles are very voracious. They live in families.
Moles benefit by loosening the ground and thereby contributing to aeration and moisturizing. They destroy a large number of invertebrates, which are pests of agriculture and forestry. Some moles cause harm by eating earthworms and damaging the roots of garden and vegetable crops.
