+ - Mima Mound Mystery Solved->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "Over the decades, 50 or more explanations have been offered for the fields of broad, meter-high mounds of soil found across the western United States and on every continent except Antarctica.

And it took a computer model programmed to act like the burrowing rodents to unearth the truth."
