Fact of the week

Our pygmy shrews can eat 125% of their body weight every day! An average pygmy shrew weighs 4.1 grams and, averagely, munches through a daily 5.0 grams’ worth of insects, arachnids and woodlice.

Conservation Status: Shrews are protected under the 1981 Wildlife & Countryside Act. As with all shrews, they may be trapped only under licence.
