    Any idea what this is, besides mini? Has such a long, ratty nose, but then, it’s hard to tell what it might have looked like when alive. Intriguing shot in any case. Well done.

  • Alive it looks almost the same,but then with the eyes open!Haha.It’s a shrew(the smallest species there is).Thanks for commenting,Sheila.

    FYI, Shrews are not Mice or even Rodents… more closely relaed to Moles.

  • Stupid me!Thanks for correcting me,Kane.I’ve already changed it.
