SHREW: Sorex ornatus
"Shrew looks similar to mice with narrow, pointed snouts and very
long whiskers. Their eyes are tiny and ears are hidden in the fur. Their
fur is usually brown or grayish darker on the back than on the belly. They
are very shy animals, darting into the under growth or down a burrow at
the slightest sound. Shrews feed manily on insects, worms, and other small
animals. Their teeth are sharp and pointed. Shrews are extremely nervous
animal. Sudden loud sounds can literatly frighten the to death. When frightened,their
heart may beat up to 1,200 times a minute."

"Why So Many Shrew
Couples Break Up"
Cartoon by R. Safsten © 1999
"As you might imagine, there's a rather limited audience for "shrew
humor." My wife certainly doesn't see anything funny about this. With
almost nauseous humility I modestly affirm that it was my No. 2 pencil
that caused all the damage. You have no idea how difficult it is to get
shrews to sit still long enough for this kind of sketch..." Ronald
