Red-backed vole


Unbeknownst to us big-foots on high, the red-backed vole and other little animals remain fully operative in an insulated space between snow and ground called the ”subnivean” level (literally, “beneath the snow”). Voles keep to their own network of runways, socializing, scavenging for vegetation, and occasionally surfacing for a breath of cold fresh air.
