Common Name: Pine or woodland vole
Scientific Name: Microtus pinetorum
Habitat: Woodlands and brushy areas with heavy ground cover.
Diet: Herbivorous—roots, seeds, fruit, tubers, fungi, and small invertebrates.
This mammal builds a large network of subterranean tunnels where it caches food for the winter. It can be a serious agricultural pest when it girdles orchard trees in order to consume the bark during the winter months.
