Rare Dwarf Shrew
Photo by Dick Orleans www.raremoment.com
Dick Orleans shares with us this photo he captured of a Dwarf Shrew, "Sorex nanus." According to RMNP Biologist, Gary C. Miller. "It's not a rodent. The Dwarf Shrew is a species of mammal in the family Soricidae. It is endemic to Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming in the United States. The Dwarf Shrew is not very common in our area and could well be the smallest mammal anywhere." See more photos on pages 24-25.
