Wierdest Nose in the World!

A reader informed me of this interesting video by National Geographics on an animal called the "Star-Nosed Mole".

There are 22 tentacles that make up the nose and it "smells" as well as "sees" by touch (pretty important given the mole is blind). The nose provides information about its surroundings in 25 milliseconds and it moves at lightspeed! Check out the video!

Pretty amazing!
