it may be a vole. I found something like that dead at our cabin near Prescott. I think
it was a vole. Shrews aren’t supposed to live in our state, but voles
do. I do believe they are rodents, but much smaller then mice.

Subject: [iris-photos] Shrew -Not
suppose to live here
I have found several of these. I understand they eat
bugs. They are not a rodent. Does anyone know these?. I think in the
east they are common.
- According to our wildlife dept in AZ I don't think
they are suppose to live here. Not sure why. ? But if they
are insect eaters, they sound beneficial to my yard.
Anyone familiar or give me more personal insight into this
little thing. It's only about 2-3 inches.
Seems harmless enough to my iris as best I can figure.
