In the darkness underground, marsupial moles’ blind, tubular bodies actually make sense—including the pouch that has evolved to face backwards so it doesn’t fill with sand!
Despite their strange appearance, marsupial moles may benefit the desert ecosystem by controlling invertebrate populations and redistributing materials through the soil.
You don't have to look ugly to Save Ugly. We’re celebrating the not-so-cute critters that support life on earth—and you can too! Designed by local and international artists, these tees are rearing their ugly heads for a limited time only, so don't miss out.
Steve Gavan is a designer and illustrator from Melbourne. He loves that the mysterious marsupial mole looks so soft and furry, but this shy, blind critter is actually a keen hunter—or, as Steve puts it, a “little killing machine”.
