Caption

Underside of a mole (family talpidae) forepaw. The mole uses its broad forepaws, which are permanently bent outwards for digging, to excavate the tunnels and burrows that it lives in. Talpid moles have a predigit (curved area at right) next to their thumb (bottom) called a prepollex that widens the surface area of the paw for digging and helps to brace the wrist.
