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 sheer chance on a chilly autumn evening at the beach in Des Moines, Washington on the Puget Sound.
