As many of you know, we have been having lots of trouble at my house with Armadillos (click here for story). There are Armadillos living in the pond area across from our house. Each spring, they come and destroy my mom's flower beds and yard. This year has been especially bad, as they keep digging huge holes under our house! These sneaky creatures come out at night and avoid being photographed.
Mom was working in the yard a few weeks ago, just after an especially bad dillo trench was dug in our front yard. Mom had to replace some bushes that were not doing well, and when she dug them up, she also dug up these babies! They were not bigger than mom's finger, had no eyes and she could see them breathing! They were found in some really tough hard clay soil we have.
Mom had armadillos on the brain, so she freaked out and against all her normal animal loving instincts, mom threw them in the garbage!
Later that day, mom got on the internet to see if she could verify what kind of babies these were. She found they were not armadillo babies at all! They were Baby Moles! Now even though moles have somewhat of a "pesty" reputation, mom was pretty upset about ending their lives! And can you imagine how I felt too? Mom killed my Baby Mole animal friends!
