If you want to know the record holder for the scariest animal in the world, then you're in the right place. There are many animals considered to be scary, but one tops them all. The star-nosed mole (Condylura cristata) is a small mole found in wet low areas of eastern Canada and the north-eastern United States.
The star-nosed mole lives in wet lowland areas and eats small invertebrates, aquatic insects, worms and mollusks. It is a good swimmer and can forage along the bottoms of streams and ponds.

Sifting through the various food-related foul odors, we came across these repeat offenders: moldy cheese, boiled cabbage, bacon grease, and at the top of the heap, garbage piles.
