Elephantulus edwardii overview

Lineage: Eukaryota[10856]; Metazoa[5115]; Chordata[2487]; Craniata[2464]; Vertebrata[2464]; Euteleostomi[2443]; Mammalia[687]; Eutheria[513]; Afrotheria[12]; Macroscelidea[1]; Macroscelididae[1]; Elephantulus[1]; Elephantulus edwardii[1]
The Cape elephant shrew (Elephantulus edwardii) is native to arid rocky habitats of southern South Africa. Elephant shrews are named for their highly mobile, elongated snouts, small body sizes, and insectivorous diets. Though they look and behave similar to the true shrews of Eurasia and North America they are actually more closely related to More...
