Lesser Hedgehog Tenrec (Echinops telfairi)

Series of measured illustrations of the Lesser Hedgehog Tenrec

The Lesser Hedgehog Tenrec (Echinops telfairi) has a profile of a hedgehog. However, it is still small, stout, with a short tail and prominent ears. Its limbs and muzzles are of moderate length. It is mostly found in tropical dry forests, dry shrublands, and dry savannas of Madagascar. The lesser hedgehog tenrec is terrestrial and may feed on insects or small invertebrates. Besides, it is a solitary animal. Its hair is modified into black and white spines to act as protection from predators, while its belly and paws have fine hairs. These nocturnal animals have poor eyesight, but with a well-developed sense of smell and hearing and sensitive whiskers.

The Lesser Hedgehog Tenrec has a body length in the range of 5.1”-7.1” (13-18 cm) and total weight of .25-.56 lb (113-255 g). The Lesser Hedgehog Tenrec has a rough standing height between 2”-2.75” (5-7 cm) and body width of 1.8”-2.75” (4.5-7 cm). The typical lifespan of the Lesser Hedgehog Tenrec is between 5-19 years.

The African Insectivores, or Afroinsectiphilia, is a proposed subdivision of insectivores native to the African continent. The proposal includes otter shrews, golden moles, tenrecs, and even aardvarks. Many species are omnivores and still possess most of their primitive features.
