Diurnal Above-ground Movement in Hairy-tailed Moles, Parascalops breweri
Keywords:Hairy-tailed Moles, Parascalops breweri, diurnal, dispersal, above-ground, Ontario
AbstractWe report the first record of Hairy-tailed Moles (Parascalops breweri) moving above ground during the day and suggest that the four individuals observed were young-of-the-year dispersing from their natal territories. Extreme drought conditions may also have driven these animals to move above ground.
