But I mean, if you’re a Golden Mole it makes sense to lack the sense of sight. Digging around underground all day in the darkness is more of a tactile experience anyways.
Here’s an interesting fact for you: the Golden Mole was only discovered by examining the stomach contents of owls! If not for that, who knows when (and if) we would have found these little diggers. Pretty crazy huh?
What do you think… cute or creepy?
