The Unusual Star Nosed Mole

If you saw a star-nosed mole your first thought would probably be where is its face  This strange-looking creature is the world’s fastest eater. It is fuzzy and uses its star to hunt. It bops it against soil which gives it the possibility to touch 10 or 12 different places in just a single second. The star looks like this animal has had an octopus attached to its head. The star-nosed mole is one of two animals in the world that can smell underwater by blowing air bubbles and then sucking them back into its nose.

These moles can be found all through the U.S. state of Connecticut and in all the other New England states. Their wide talon-tipped forefeet help them with digging. They enjoy a diet of earthworms and aquatic insects.
