The Cape golden mole (Chrysochloris asiatica) is a small, insectivorous mammal native to a restricted area of southwestern South Africa. There are approximately 20 species of golden moles and all are endemic to sub-Saharan Africa. These subterranean mammals have no external eyes, ears, or tails. Golden moles have low basal metabolic rates and More...
