The Star-Nosed Mole Can Eat!

Star-nosed moles live underground, and are functionally blind. Their nose is a highly adapted sensory organ that can sense microscopic shifts in the environment, allowing the mole to identify and eat prey in record speeds. The nose has six times as many large nerve fibers as a human hand in its 22 fleshy tendrils.
