 Star Nosed Mole(星鼻鼹鼠)

The Star Nosed Mole is a mall mole found in the wet and low areas of eastern Canada and the northeastern United States. It is covered in thick, blackish-brown, water-repellent fur and has large feet and a long, thick tail. It is good at swimming and digging, and uses its hairless nose -- shaped like a "star" of 22 fleshy tentacles -- to identify food by touch, such as worms, insects and crustaceans, making up for its poor eyesight. The tentacles are extremely sensitive and can even sense electricity.
