Moles are small mammals with adaptions for their subterranean lifestyle. Their cylindrical bodies are covered in velvety fur and they have inconspicuous ears and eyes. They have reduced hindlimbs but short and powerful forelimbs with large paws ideally suited for digging.
The term "mole" is especially and most properly used for "true moles" of the Talpidae family in the order Eulipotyphla found in most parts of North America, Asia, and Europe; although it may also refer to other unrelated mammals of Australia and southern Africa which have similarly evolved the mole body plan. The term is not applied to all talpids; e.g. desmans and shrew-moles differ from the common definition of "mole".
Moles have been found to tolerate higher levels of carbon dioxide than other mammals, because their blood cells have a special form of hemoglobin, that has a higher affinity to oxygen than other forms.
In addition to this, moles utilize oxygen more effectively by reusing the exhaled air, and as a result, are able to survive in low-oxygen environments such as underground burrows
