Robbing Rodents Save Tropical Plant by Krystnell A. Storr. "Call it the Robin Hood of rodents.

CUTE LITTLE ELEPHANT SHREW! Elephant shrews are small, quadrupedal, insectivorous mammals resembling rodents or opossums, with scaly tails, elongated snouts, and rather long legs for their size, which are used to move in a hopping fashion like rabbits. Although mostly diurnal and very active, they are difficult to trap and very seldom seen.
