The muskrat is a vigorous vole weighing up to 1.8 kg. It has short legs and a more petite body, up to 33 cm long. The meagerly-haired, textured tail is straightened upward and can be as long as the body.

Eastern Mole

A little, bold, smoothed-out warm-blooded creature with covered ears, minuscule eyes, and a beefy, mobile nose. The smooth fur is grayish-earthy above and gleaming dark underneath.

These animals in Missouri are one of the significant sources of fur business, and people used to jail them for fur business, as in those days, they used to survive on this trade. They are wild animals, tiny in size.


These animals in Missouri are long-legged felines with giant paws, a reasonably short body, and tufted ears; the wildcat is 60–100 cm long, barring the 10–20-cm tail, stands 50–60 cm at the shoulder, and weighs 7–15 kg.

They have protruding eyes and gigantic ears, weigh 15 to 110 grams, and are 8 to 17 cm long. The tail might be more limited than the head and body or strikingly longer, contingent upon the species.
