Long, waterproof fur, even covering feet and ears, keeps the steppe vole warm in the cold north Asian steppes. It has a black stripe along the middle of its pale grey or cinnamon back, and pale underparts. Burrows up to 30 cm (12 in) deep give temporary shelter, while more permanent ones – 3 times as deep house grass-lined nests. There are 5 litters per year of up to 12 young.
