Description

The Cape Golden Mole (Chrysochloris asiatica) habitat is diverse. It can be moist soil with mixed clay or just sandy. It is endemic to the southwestern regions of South Africa. The Cape golden mole is a solitary mammal that feeds on soil invertebrates with a dense coat of silky covered in black/gray and brown/pale color. Its body is streamlined, head pointed, forelegs short, claws stout, and a nose with a leathery patch. These features make it good at digging and burrowing. Another unique feature is that it lacks a tail and well-developed eyesight, but has a good sense of smell and hearing. It uses seismic vibration for sensing and is very elusive.
