Voles are small rodents and are frequently referred to as meadow mice or field mice. They typically live about 3-6 months and there are about 70 species of voles. They have blunt noses, small furry ears, dense brown fur and a tail with no fur.
One vole's home range is usually no larger than 1/4 acre. Depending on their species, voles thrive in a range of different habitats, all of which have dense ground cover. As semifossorial rodents, voles commonly spend much of their time underground in complex burrow systems as part of a colony. Here they nest, seek protection and feed on vegetation from under the earth's surface.
Primarily herbivorous, voles commonly feed on grass, as well as the seeds, roots, stems and leaves of plants.
The European water vole can swim up to 50 ft. underwater.
