NATURE | The Beauty of Ugly | 22-Tentacled Nose | PBS

Duration: 03:04

"NATURE" travels the world to reveal the vital functions behind the vile faces of the animal kingdom in "The Beauty of Ugly," premiering Sunday, November 18 on PBS (check local listings). This clip spotlights the star-nosed mole, whose 22 fleshy tentacles are super-sensitive to touch and allow it to hunt 14 times faster than its competition. Academy Award-winning actor F. Murray Abraham narrates the film, part of the 26th season of "NATURE," the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York for PBS. Major corporate support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc. and Toyota. For more information, visit www.pbs.org/nature
