Intruder alert!

While checking on the garden tonight, I noticed some peculiar soil formations under the pole beans. On further inspection, it turned out something has been digging around the base of the plants.  As I continued to walk around the bed, I noticed a sizable hole under the cucumbers along with a number of tunnel tracks. Hmm, starting to look like something found a way in through the fence. Or more likely, under the door. So, far at least, no lasting damage has been done.

What could be hiding down this hole?

Tunnel excavation dumping ground.  Right in the middle of the lettuce.

So… what could it be?  My money is on one of these guys…

 

Or maybe, that pile of soil in the lettuce is made by one of these…

A mole perhaps?
