Interesting Facts About #Shrews  

➲ Shrew comes from the Middle English word “shrewe” which translates to mean an evil or scolding person.

➲ There are over 300 difference species of shrews in the world on every continent except Australia and Antarctica.

➲ Lifespan of shrews is very short, between 12 and 30 months.

➲ Whereas rodents have gnawing incisors that grow throughout life, the teeth of shrews wear down throughout life.

➲ Shrews are solitary animals (live on their own) that can be seen together only during mating season and aggressively chases away other shrews from its territory during non-breeding season.

➲ Shrews has the fastest metabolic rate of all known animals (even higher than hummingbird) with a heart rate that averages 700 beats per minute. Because its heart beating so fast, this animals are easily startled and faint with deadly consequences. 

➲ Due to high energetic needs, shrew must eat 80-90 % of their own body weight in food daily. They eat anything available, but prefer small animals. Short period of food deprivation (half a day) will leads to death. Shrews also have been known to die of fright after a loud burst of thunder.

➲ Shrews has poor eyesight, but excellent sense of smell and hearing. Last two senses help shrews to locate its prey and avoid predators. Shrews are also very smart animals. Their brain weighs 10% of the total body weight.

➲ Shrews excrete a musky smell from scent glands located on the belly and sides. The smell is so foul that while shrews are often killed, they are rarely eaten.

Every human being on the planet should know more than one language. All we are the same as the others - just our languages are different.
Also - isn't bad to know at least one... :)
