Penguin here.

Blue Bear and I were watching the BBC Clip here on youtube about the desert when we came across a little golden mole. Golden moles are small: ranging from 8cm to 20cm in length according to the Wikipedia article. If you’re wondering where their eyes are, they’re actually under their hair and skin and are therefore non-functional, but these little guys mostly use their sense of touch to get around.

I was playing Pokemon again the other day and ran into a Pokemon called Drillbur. He was a little mole, and he was extremely cute. Here’s a picture of him:

Anyway, I thought of real moles when I saw him, and decided to check them out. Moles are definitely goofy looking, but they’re also very cute. Their eyes are quite difficult to find, unlike Drillbur’s, but the Pokemon artists definitely got the claws right! They look quite sharp, but they’re obviously used for cute things like digging little holes! Anyway, here’s a cute little mole:
