    I stumbled across this little fellow on the driveway. From nose to end of tail 4inches long. Not sure what it is but I've seen a couple of the same dead on the lawn over the past few years.

    Mr Mow,

    It didn't appear to have any eyes.

    Moles have much bigger front paws. Paddle-like.
