Ok so a couple of times a week I'm going to pick an animal and give you some interesting facts about them, so here we go. Today's animal is the Shrew.
- The smallest mammal is believed to be the Pygmy Shrew found in South Africa, Pakistan and India, an adult may measure only 1 1/2 inches in length and weigh less than a penny.
- Biologist's believe that the Pygmy Shrew is the smallest possible design for a warmblooded animal because of the tremendous amount of food that it must eat to remain alive. A mammal smaller than the shrew would not be able to eat fast enough to avoid starvation.
