Tree Vole


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Tiny, mouse-like tree voles live high up in the Douglas firs of Oregon and California. They are crucial to the forest ecosystem, as a primary food source for spotted owls and other predators. Researchers must climb high up into old growth trees to get a glimpse of the elusive vole.
