Would a group of moles not be a 'mole cule'?

Ok, what about tadpoles? I have a pond full. The best I could come up with is a spawn.

I quite like the idea of a 'Blemish of moles'
Has anyone seen the plot, I seem to have lost mine?

When I lived in the Isle of Man the local B&Q sold mole traps and squirrel proof bird feeders despite neither of these species living there.
Just because you see two eyes shining in the jungle at night, do not think that the worse thing that could happen is that you are about to be attacked by a tiger. It could be two one-eyed tigers.

I usually refer to them as the "synchronised ground support" for the pigeons aerial attack? What is that Pigeons, rabbits and moles all have against a perfectly arranged veg patch. I often wonder whether they meet to discuss their strategic approach to veg patch destruction!
