Shrews are intriguing Minnesota mammals
They're neither mouse nor vole, yet they have features of both. They scamper about, they squeak, they're small, and they're furry. But strange as it is, these mouse-like creatures of the woods and farm are no more a rodent than you and I are. Indeed, what I'm talking about here is none other than the humble shrew; though, even with them, there's plenty of variability amongst the lot.
