The Kid Should See This

The Star-Nosed Mole and its extraordinary nose

With 22 sensitive fingers on its unique and extraordinary nose, it can hunt for food successfully above ground, below ground, or underwater, where it blows bubbles to sniff out food. Meet the star-nosed mole in this clip from NatGeo Wild’s World’s Deadliest, a replacement video for the BBC’s “Life” documentary, which is no longer available online.

There are many more BBC clips in the archives. Plus, more videos about noses.
