A burrow can be defined as a hole or a channel dug into the earth by an animal to create a space for habitation or temporary shelter. Burrows protect the animals from enemies, predators and adverse environmental conditions. Rodents like rats and mice, insects, reptiles, rabbits, aquatic animals like fish, amphibians like frog and even the birds are known to dig a burrow.

Burrows are constructed by various creatures in different kinds of substrate like sand, tree-trunk, rock etc. For example termites are known to create burrows in wood. Burrows can be quite simply made or it can be a remarkable complex network of interlocking tunnels which can astonish a qualified architect. These burrows can run as far as thousand of meters for example, a rabbit burrow.

A burrow can also refer to a cozy, warm and closely confined space or place. Burrow can be used as a verb which would imply "to dig a hole"or as a noun itself, which simply relates to the definition.
