We bet you’ve never seen a nose quite like a Star-nosed Mole’s snout. It looks like a star with 22 pink tentacles, called rays. One of the ways it uses these rays is to find its way around. You see, this mole lives underground in tunnels and burrows and the rays help them get around in the dark. Plus, these rays are super sensitive — they’ve got about 100,000 nerve endings. If you compare that to your hand, which has about 17,000 nerve endings, you can really see just how sensitive the Star-nosed Mole’s nose really is! They also use these rays to smell underwater. They’ll blow air bubbles under water at objects around them. Then they’ll quickly suck all those air bubbles back in to find out what those objects are — and if they’re good enough to eat.
