Down Under

marten

 

With the great blanket of snow, it would seem that those creatures that can stay above without much effort are poised to do best, but some others do well because of their ability to live in the subnivean environment.. An entirely different world exists beneath the snow, a world inhabited by mice and voles and ermine and marten. It’s relatively warm, no wind chill, and full of places to hide. The crunch will come later, when the snow starts to thaw and freeze on a recurring basis. But right now, it’s not a bad place to be.
