These inconspicious little animals are real survivors!
In Switzerland snow voles live above 1000m altitude. They have even been seen as high as 4000m altitude and above.
Snow voles live in rock crevices, amongst boulders and scree. They move around their habitat with great agility. In view of the nature of the terrain, they scarcely have to compete with other mammals. In winter they live below the snow, making the most of the good insulation properties that the snow cover provides, well protected too from their foes.
