Facts about the family Notoryctidae, the marsupial moles

Marsupial moles are especially similar to Africa’s golden moles, in size and shape as well as silky fur texture.

  The variation between true moles (which include the remarkable Star-nosed Mole) and other mole-like creatures, such as the Golden Mole and marsupial moles, is simply a reflection of different created kinds.

Because they live underground, Marsupial Moles are blind and have a very poor sense of hearing, but their senses of touch and of smell are quite highly developed.

Marsupial moles are small, burrowing mammals with sensitive snouts, nearly blind eyes, no ears, and large claws that they use for digging.

The almost complete eye reduction found in the families Spalacidae, Chrysochloridae and Notoryctidae is related to the use of the head as a wedge while digging.

The most striking difference between placental moles and marsupial moles is the color of their fur.
