The Eospalax baileyi (plateau zokor, formerly Myospalax baileyi) is a subterranean burrowing endemic rodent (blind mole rat) inhabiting areas of 2600-4600 metres above sea level on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (Fan and Shi, 1982).
A plateau zokor can push the total 1024 kg of soil up above the surface during the mild climatic period of 89 days (Wang and Fan, 1987).
The method of arrow traps can have a great potential to control the zokor in the Qinghai-Tibetan plateau because it lives style with subterranean burrowing activities.
