A blind animal that lives in the earth

General Attributes

The mole lives in constant darkness, and so is blind. It digs in the earth, eating roots and piling up soil. Its hearing is so acute that it cannot be taken by surprise. Richard de Fournival in the Bestiaire d'Amour says that the mole only eats pure earth, an assertion not found elsewhere.
