Faith is the virtue being demonstrated by these marsupial moles. Living without their sense of sight in a sandy environment just to nourish their body seems to be the best example to live by faith and not with what we see with our eyes. Unlike other animal symbols that teach us to be more inquisitive, Marsupial mole shows us to live without any doubt. Doubt sometimes fails us to enjoy moments of our life such as love and spirituality in fear of something.
