The Great Mole is a docile creature which was nearly hunted to extinction by the Goblins as a source of food. Dwarven Clerics, however, discovered the creatures were quite intelligent, for animals, and could be trained by a Dwarf with patience and diligence. With the help of a trainer they learn to be alert and ferocious fighters. Giant Moles, without a trainer are almost completely blind. To compensate, trainers employ devices to enhance their underground vision. Moles have great claws which not only do damage to enemies but are used to rip tunnels through the earth. As with the Wild Boar, with their trainer's expertise Moles have been known to cross high mountains without too much difficulty, but they prefer life underground.
Moles eat a diet of Big Beetle grubs, and Sandworm Larvae. They are resistant to poison.
