Hello, my name is Digger The Mole

Meet Digger, the industrious mole with a passion for digging and a heart of gold! He has velvety fur and a keen sense of smell, but he cannot see very well, so he borrowed some glasses from Nan Fran.

Digger is a master of the underground world. He tirelessly tunnels through the Earth in search of adventure and treasure.

Born into a cosy burrow beneath the roots of a mighty oak tree, Digger’s fascination with digging began at an early age. 

But Digger’s adventures aren’t just about satisfying his curiosity – he’s also a friend to all creatures great and small. Whether lending a helping paw to a lost rabbit or rescuing a stranded insect from a muddy pit, Digger’s kindness and generosity know no bounds.

Information on Diggers Family.

Their typical life expectancy is three years. They grow approximately six to eight inches long and weigh three to six ounces.

There are 42 different species worldwide of moles; they are members of the mammal family Talpidae.

A group of moles is known as a ‘labour.’

The mole’s fur is designed to move in both directions so that it can move backwards and forwards.

Moles have sensitive whiskers which can detect the slightest vibrations in the ground.

Moles’ saliva contains a toxin which can paralyse worms so that they can be stored underground for later consumption.

They rarely come up to the surface, but when they do, it is only to collect leaves, which are used in their nests.

A star-nosed mole can detect, catch and eat food faster than the human eye can follow.

They will defend their burrows against rivals because they are highly territorial.
