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 objects 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.
