Moles dine on earthworms and other insects in the soil, they also trap mice that walk into their tunnels underground. The saliva of a mole contains a toxin that paralyzes earthworms and other insects. Despite their poor eyesight, moles can sense when a worm falls into their tunnel causing the mole to catch it. Within their tunnels, moles create a stockpile to store their prey for later consumption.
