The star-nosed mole has a pink snout that is especially good at finding food.  The snout’s 22 fingerlike rays can touch up to 12 ev olutionobjects in just one second.  The mole also uses strong paddle-shaped feet for burrowing, and its large ear openings give it excellent hearing.  These special traits make up for it poor vision- which it doesn’t really need underground.  (McDougal Littell) Chapter 10
