Silky

A few days ago, we came across this American Shrew-Mole (Neurotrichus gibbsii) on Bodega Head.  It wasn't alive, and we couldn't tell what had happened to it.  We don't see shrew-moles very often, and it's fur was so beautiful that I decided to share a picture:


I first introduced this intriguing mammal on 9 February 2013.  There's quite a bit of information in that post, so to learn more about shrew-moles, or "burrowers of the soft earth," click here.
