North African Elephant Shrew (Petrosaltator rozeti)

Set of scaled side and front drawings of the North African Elephant Shrew

The North African Elephant Shrew (Petrosaltator rozeti) has a rodent-like appearance coming of its small body, long tail, and large ears. It is light and covered in yellowish-brown to pale sandy-pink fur and a white underside. Like other elephant shrews, the snout is long and flexible. Besides, their nostrils are at the top of their snout. Its forelimbs are shorter than its rear limbs, enabling it to jump or run easily. The North African elephant shrew is found in Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, and Libya in the desert and shrubby vegetation. Females give birth to pups of four liters twice a year. It is solitary, often forming a monogamous pair to defend a territory.

The North African Elephant Shrew has a body length in the range of 4.3”-5.1” (11-13 cm) and total weight of 1.4-1.9 oz (40-55 g). The North African Elephant Shrew has a rough standing height between 3.3”-4.1” (8.5-10.5 cm), body width of 2.2”-2.75” (5.5-7 cm), and tail length of 5.1”-6.3” (13-16 cm). The typical lifespan of the North African Elephant Shrew is between 1-4 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.
