The creeping vole (also known as the Oregon vole or Oregon meadow mouse) is the smallest of the Pacific Northwest vole species and can be found from British Columbia to Northern California, west of the Cascade Mountains.They are so small that a full-grown adult weighs around two-thirds of an ounce! This was one found by leisurely walking among the fallen autumn leaves near the beach in Des Moines, Washington on the Puget Sound.
