Asset Details

  • Description:
  • The star‐nosed mole (Condylura cristata) and the common (eastern) mole (Scalopus aquaticus). Star‐nosed moles live in wetlands whereas common moles live in dryer soils. These two species are closely related but have different sensory priorities. The star‐nosed mole depends primarily on mechanosensation and uses the densely innervated nasal appendages to detect and prey. The common mole has much less specialized snout and uses olfaction to efficiently home in on prey. Images copyright Ken Catania.
