I may have chopped this vole's nose off, but there's a nice clear shot of the dark brown hairy tail. Sometimes tails are all you glimpse, so it's important to know the difference between a vole's and a rat's (greyish-pink and naked). The generally rounded shape to the vole's body is the other quick-spot giveaway.

I tell you, I've never seen a skinny vole.
