Asian House Shrew

Suncus murinus

Description:

Rodent type creature, found in my new abode. Larger than a mouse and identified as a shrew.

Habitat:

In my house, Altitude 900m.

Notes:

Having established that it is not a mouse or a rat, I have decided that its eating habits of insects like roaches, qualifies it for residency. It just means that any food has to be in hard containers and the food bin, has to be fixed to the wall.

No species ID suggestions

Now it is great to have you back.

Chun - I haven't been around for six months. My computer packed in, had to give up my rented house and had severe financial problems. All solved now, so back to business as usual :)
