Re: Shrew -Not suppose to live here

We have several species of shrews here in Tennessee. They range in size
from tiny to small <g>

Renowned for high metabolic rate, they eat a <lot> in proportion to
their size. They usually die in overnight live traps unless they have
plenty of bait to eat.

I suspect you don't have much natural habitat for them, but I'd think
they'd be right at home in a garden. They are always abundant here in
old mulch piles, deep litter, stuffing themselves on crickets, worms,
and anything else that moves and is small enough for them to sink a
tooth into. And they are probably providing a snack for those copperheads!

Every now and then, one will get into the house & clean out all the
spiders & crickets.

I've had two different dogs that were huge fans of shrews - never chased
mice or voles, but loved to rummage for shrews.
