Shrew(d) Hunter

I found this shrew hunting in a rotten stump. One of it’s favourite food are termites so this is a great time of year for this guy. Shrews are very hyper animals and always on the move. They don’t sleep more than a minute and their heartbeat is about 1200 beats per minute. A formidable four inch hunter!
