Lowland Streaked Tenrec (Hemicentetes semispinosus)

Scaled collection of drawings of Lowland Streaked Tenrec in various poses with dimensions

The Lowland Streaked Tenrec (Hemicentetes semispinosus) is endemic to Madagascar, especially in the lowland rainforests either digging underground or in shallow waters. The body is small with markings of yellow or chestnut-brown stripes. The snout is long and pointed. For defense, the lowland streaked tenrec uses the bright-yellow barbed detachable quills or spines on its head. These are also used to identify it together with its long black-colored nose. Besides, it lacks a tail and gives birth to live young ones, with both parents participating in taking care of the young. The lowland streaked tenrec is mostly vermivorous, although other species eat invertebrates.

The Lowland Streaked Tenrec has a body length in the range of 4.7”-6.7” (12-17 cm) and total weight of .28-.62 lb (125-280 g). The Lowland Streaked Tenrec has a rough standing height between 2.2”-3.1” (5.5-8 cm) and body width of 1.6”-2.4” (4-6 cm). The typical lifespan of the Lowland Streaked Tenrec is between 2-2.5 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.
