Order: Insectivora

Moles, hedgehogs, shrews, solenodon and tenrecs first appeared in the Upper Cretaceous period and are now distributed worldwide except in Australia, polar regions, and many oceanic islands. They are a diverse group of mammals sharing certain primitive characteristics but highly specialized in several adaptive modes. They are  terrestrial, arboreal, semi-aquatic and are insectivorous to omnivorous.  The  Shrews are the smallest of living mammals.
