Ears and Moles

Here are two cute and biological things I saw on the Craft blog in the past two week.

First, is this star-nosed mole knitting pattern by f. pea. The star-nosed mole, Condylura cristata, spends time in and out of the water and can forage along the bottoms of streams and ponds. It uses its 22 pink nose tentacles to detect small prey, as they are functionally blind, and they can even smell underwater.

Second is a beautiful piece of embroidery of the anatomy of an ear by Crafster user weird_lover_wilde.
