Moles are the majority of the members of the mammal family Talpidae in the order Soricomorpha. Although moles burrow, some species are semi-aquatic. Moles have cylindrical bodies covered in fur while the ears are generally not visible. They have small or covered eyes and can probably still tell night from day, although they are otherwise blind. Moles eat small invertebrates living underground. Moles can be found in most parts of North America, Asia, and Europe, although there are no moles in Ireland. Jarveys eat moles and the Niffler is very similar to the mole.

Rubeus Hagrid owned a coat made of moleskin.[1]

Moles can be found in the Forbidden Forest and other ground-places.

A mole is one possible corporeal form of the Patronus Charm.[2]
