A fossorial (from Latin fossor, meaning "digger") animal is one adapted to digging which lives primarily, but not solely, underground. Some examples are badgers, naked mole-rats, clams, meerkats, and mole salamanders. Most bees and wasps are called "fossorial Hymenoptera". Fossorial lifestyles in many rodent species are also considered fossorial as they live in burrows for most of the day, though they may be surface-dwelling during other parts of the day. Species that live exclusively underground, on the other hand, are described as subterranean fauna. Some organisms are fossorial to aid in temperature regulation while others use the underground habitat for protection from predators or for food storage. An animal is said to be sub-fossorial if it shows limited adaptations to a fossorial li

  • Un organismo fosorial es aquel adaptado a la excavación y vida subterránea, como el tejón, la rata topo desnuda, y las salamandras topo de la familia Ambystomatidae. Este adjetivo es usado con mayor frecuencia para describir los habitantes subterráneos, aún si las adaptaciones físicas para estos son mínimas, por ello la mayoría de las abejas y muchas avispas son denominadas «himenopteros fosoriales», y la gran mayoría de los roedores son considerados fosoriales. Algunos organismos lo son para ayudar en la regulación de la temperatura, mientras otros utilizan el hábitat para la protección de los predadores y almacenamiento de alimentos.​
  • In zoologia il termine fossòrio (dal latino fossorius, derivante da fodĕre = "scavare") indica un organismo con abitudini fossorie, cioè che trascorre la propria esistenza scavando il terreno. Il termine può stare ad indicare anche il particolare adattamento delle zampe di alcuni mammiferi come le talpe o di alcuni insetti come i grillotalpidi (cosiddette zampe fossòrie). Abitudini di vita fossorie si riscontrano tra i mammiferi, i rettili, gli anfibi, i pesci, e in molti raggruppamenti di invertebrati (artropodi, molluschi, echinodermi, vermi, etc.)

  • Un animal fouisseur est un animal, terrestre ou aquatique, qui creuse respectivement le sol et les sédiments pour y passer tout ou partie de sa vie ou s'y nourrir (vers de terre par exemple). Il creuse des trous ou des galeries (simples ou multiples, à une ou plusieurs sorties) et y vit seul, en famille ou en groupe plus importants. Parfois, un même terrier peut être partagé par plusieurs espèces. Dans le cas d'animaux comme le ver de terre ou certains vers de sable, le terrier est aussi en quelque sorte un sous-produit de son mode de locomotion.
  • Um animal fossorial (do latim fossor, "cavador") é aquele que está adaptado a cavar e a viver debaixo do solo, como o texugo, o rato-toupeira-pelado, ou as salamandras do gênero Ambystoma. Muitas abelhas e vespas são consideradas himenópteros fossoriais, e alguns roedores, embora não tenham adaptações exclusivas a esse tipo de vida. O termo fossorial, para os roedores, frequentemente se refere a animais que vivem a parte do tempo em túneis cavados, enquanto que aqueles que vivem exclusivamente nesse tipo de ambiente são chamados de "subterrâneos".
