They may look harmless, but some Shrews are actually #venomousmammals ! American short-tailed shrews, Eurasian water shrews, Mediterranean water shrews and northern short-tailed shrews all deliver venomous bites. They may look like mice (except with fatter bodies and longer snouts) but they are not related. At all. In fact, they are not even rodents, but insectivorous mammals that are more closely related to moles. It is thought that shrews evolved the ability to use venom in order to hunt larger prey and also for incapacitating prey to store as a live food source during the winter. Prey includes mainly insects, earthworms, snails, lizards, salamanders and small rodents such as mice and voles. However for humans there’s no need to worry - no shrew has ever been recorded killing a human. While their bites can hurt, the toxin delivered isn’t enough to be harmful. In fact, shrew venom can even prove helpful for humans, since scientists have discovered that it can be used to treat migraines, hypertension and even wrinkles. Interesting!

Heard and then saw this little guy yesterday under our bushes. Screaming for his parents. This was heart melting. While I was searching for family and online for good tips, his mother or father showed up and they were reunited :-) <3 Hope to see this little buddies again - think they have their home in our garden. By the way, I think that this is a shrew. Is this right? #airballarne #shrew #baby #garden #gardening #nature #reunited #bremerhaven #latergram

The Taming of the Shrew (Act V, Scene II): The Shrew is a play within a play - a framing device I use in Hamlet, LLL, and MSND - which begins with an induction where a douchey lord plays a joke on a drunken tinker named Christopher Sly and tries to convince him that he is in fact an aristocrat. The subject of the main plot of the play that Sly sits down to watch depicts Petruchio’s “courtship” of Katherine and the various psychological torments he uses to change her headstrong shrewish ways. Some say this play is mysogynistic, while others suggest a more nuanced reading is in order - Ill let you be the judge. This excerpt is the final speech given by Katherine, which marks her successful “taming” wherein she describes the proper role of a wife as one of obedience and conforming to a husband’s wishes. The speech can be read several ways ... is it sincerely delivered because she has finally submitted, or perhaps even fallen in love? Or is it delivered ironically and she is sarcastically duping Petruchio into thinking he has tamed her? Do share your interpretation in the comments! Depicted here is a scene from the 1969 version of #thetamingoftheshrew with #richardburton and #elizabethtaylor - If you are interested in a modern adaptation, I recommend #10thingsIhateaboutyou with #HeathLedger and #JuliaStiles #feminism #patriarchy #multipleinterpretations #shakespeare #petruchio #katherine #shrew

Random shrew facts : shrews are one of the most voracious mammalian predators on the planet,good job they’re so small. A shrew’s heart rate beats 800 to 1000 times per minute. They can also shrink their skeletons and brain and they’re venomous too! Shrews are truly amazing little animals. • • • • • #peakdistrict #livethelittlethings #darlingmovement #cerealmag #kinfolk #livefolk #vsco #vscocam #posttheordinary #thehappynow #maker #craft #illustrator #womaninbusiness #sketch #draw #instaart #creative #ink #pens #drawings #wearederbyshire #inkandpaper #myart #chasinglight #theeverygirl #artoftheday #folkandstory #shrew #wildlife
This cutie is a Boni Giant Sengi. They are a type of shrew. They are also called elephant shrews, jumping shrews, or sengis. They are small mammals that live in Africa. Follow me (@exotics_101_ ) • • • #bonigiantsengi #shrew #africa #elephantshrew #jumpingshrew #sengis #cute #wow #naturescreation

Rouler c'est aussi le meilleur moyen d'observer et de prendre conscience de la faune et la flore que nous rencontrons. Quelle magnifique libellule! Et cette musaraigne n'est-elle pas adorable? Riding is also the best way to observe and become aware of the fauna and flora we encounter. This dragonfly is beautiful!

Bon, bon, bon... Avant le festin, il faut bien travailler un peu. Parce que recevoir tout le temps des mouches, des guêpes et des frelons fraichement tué.e.s de notre part sans rien faire... On en deviendrait presque domestique et on perdrait les bonnes habitudes de fouiller le sol... ! Les musaraignes semblent de plus en plus familières et de moins en moins craintives... Elles courent partout dans le parc, on a presque peur de les écraser au passage, tellement elles gambadent parmi nous à toute heure. On les aime nos gentils petits mammifères mignons et bien utiles, car mes musaraignes sont de féroces prédateurs de ces insectes souvent indésirables. . . #Musaraigne #ivy #Nature #Fauna #Animal #Animallover #mammifère #Soridacés #Insectivores #insectivorus #Animalphotography #grass #green #naturelovers #animalstagram #Shrews #Musaraignes #garden #wildlife #Wildlifephotography #Vidoftheday #seewildlife #lierre #Orties #Shrew #mammal #AnimalVideo #AnimalPlanet #animalsOfInstagram
Today's spirit guide features the Shrew. Consider if you need to gather resources for the future. Allow yourself to engage in the chaotic nature of the world. Multitask and reach for your goals but don't lose control or lose yourself in the bustle. Focus on what you can do, not on what others are doing.

I was convinced the shrew was still alive... it was not. The bugs were making it move. *barf* Who know what kind of bugs these are? #shrew #deadshrew #bugid #deadwildlife #orick
