The Star-Nosed Mole

Nothing struck fear into the heart of our friend Roxie like the Star-nosed mole.  “Why did you have to pick THAT creature?” She would ask.  But our little mole, with its long claws, beady eyes and adorable lisp was a favorite of the audience and made special appearances in the lobby to greet guests.  Nina, his puppeteer, even took him home to visit her nieces and nephews.

Here, a real star-nosed mole:
