Pyrenean Desman

About Pyrenean Desman

Desmans are a rare creature. In the whole world, there are only two species; one species lives in Russia, the other lives in the Pyrenees Mountains of Spain and France. Desmans are similar to moles in that they also have very poor eyesight. They use their other sense to find food. They have a long thin snout they use to feel between rocks in the bottom of ponds and streams to find things to eat. Desmans have waterproof fur. Their long tail acts like a rudder as they swim through the water.
