Life on the planet Vulcan was harsh. The sunlight from 40 Eridani created a dry environment, and the ancient Vulcans evolved to adjust to the planet's thin atmosphere. One evolutionary adaptation? Pointed ears! While Doctor Leonard McCoy have have thought that the pointed ears gave Mr. Spock a devilish appearance, he should have realized that the pointed ears gave him hearing far beyond anything a human could hope to achieve. These latex pointed ears affix to your own ears, giving you the appearance of someone who evolved in the harsh Vulcan environment. Blister card packaging.
