Vole? Mole? or Dry Soil?

Asked September 22, 2015, 1:20 PM EDT

Attached are 3 pictures showing crevices in my garden soil. Each crevice is maybe an inch wide at the surface and about 4-5 inches deep. Not sure if I have a critter issue or just a lack of rainfall/irrigation.

As always, thanks for your help.

This doesn't appear to be due to a mole or vole. Moles raise the ground by their digging creating raised tunnels. Vole damage usually occurs on lawns in winter. This certainly could be due to a moisture issue.
