When I put this blog up, I did NOT expect it to end up being the New England Nature Channel… but when Muffet gave us a full grown live Pygmy Shrew yesterday, I could not resist posting a little video. Enjoy. Best part comes at about 1:15.
The Pygmy Shrew is the second smallest mammal, just larger than a breed of bat. It’s bite is not that painful, like a tiny pin prick (I now know this personally). It eats its weight in bugs each day.
