The Golden Mole is completely blind, but that has not hindered this deadly predator. It's found an ingenious way of pinpointing prey in the desert using it's exceptional hearing, and for best effect, it must burrow under the sand. This clip was taken from the Deserts episode of Planet Earth II.
A BBC Studios Natural History Unit production, co-produced with BBC America, ZDF, Tencent and France Télévisions.
