In Madagascar, there is a type of animal called a Tenrec.  There are different types due to how they have evolved.  I believe they are rodents and there 29 species with most of them being on or around Madagascar.  So, let’s check some of them out for today from pictures found with a Yahoo Image Search:

Dryad Shrew Tenrec

Large-Eared Tenrec

Lesser Hedgehog Tenrec

Pygmy Shrew Tenrec

Rice Tenrec

Streaked Tenrec

Tailless Tenrec

Web-Footed Tenrec

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  2. Interesting. I’m guessing they are insectivores?

    What amazing little creatures…and so diverse! It looks as if they’ve adapted to fill every niche in their environment. Some do look rodentish, but others look almost like tiny ant-eaters. Fascinating.
    Oh! and um, merry xmas. 😀
