In a significant discovery, a species of golden mole called De Winton’s golden mole has been rediscovered in South Africa after not being observed since 1936. Conservationists, along with a trained sniffer dog named Jessie, played a crucial role in finding the elusive mammal. The mole’s subterranean nature and lack of historical information made it challenging to locate. However, frozen tracks in wet sand during an expedition provided evidence, and environmental DNA analysis confirmed the rediscovery. This finding highlights the importance of protecting lesser-known species in maintaining biodiversity.
