Andaman Shrew Sp. (ctd…)

Some of you might remember this post from John Hopkins about a likely uber rare shrew he spotted on South Andaman island. Well John and I have been trying to find out more by contacting a few experts. Although the consensus is its most likely a Crocidura shrew, and quite possibly an Andaman Shrew (a species barely known to science) no one is willing to say for sure without DNA or a skull. So the jury will have to stay out a while longer…

An update from John is here.
