What Do Mole Tracks Look Like?
Mole footprints are a rare sight since the animals live under the soil and move around through underground tunnel systems. They have rather large feet in proportion to their bodies, and they allow the subterranean creatures to easily navigate moist, loosely packed soil and form large networks of tunnels. Their wide forepaws make the animals good diggers, and while their hind paws are somewhat smaller, both sets of feet have sharp claws.
A more efficient way to find the presence of moles is to look for small mounds of upturned earth and raised seams of soil. Moles are always on the move and can excavate over a 100 feet of new tunnels in a single day, pushing up the ground and creating visible ridges. The mounds of dirt at the entrances to their burrows, known as mole hills, can appear up to 2 feet high.
