What’s the Difference Between?

Just in case you have ever gotten confused trying to distinguish mice, voles, shrews, and moles – here’s a quick guide:

There are several identifying characteristics but the eyes and ears are the primary giveaways. Mice have big eyes and big ears and a long tail. Voles sport smaller eyes and ears and a short tail. Shrews have even smaller eyes and ears, a short, naked tail and a pointed snout. In moles the eyes and ears almost too small to be seen but their most distinguishing feature is their powerful front limbs and claws built for digging.
