The Russian desman is a relative of the mole family that was hunted almost to extinction for its thick, soft fur. It spends most of its time in rivers and streams searching for crayfish and amphibians. Animals bred in captivity have been released in some areas. However, water pollution and habitat destruction have limited the efforts to reintroduce the desman into its original range.
