Elliot's Short-Tailed Shrew

Return to Shrew Information page.    Elliot's Short-Tailed Shrew    List of Different Shrews    

Nearly identical to the Southern Short-Tailed Shrew, Elliot's Short-Tailed Shrew has fur coloring that is a little different.  Its fur is grayish but without the deep brown color.  This shrew inhabits live oak trees on sandy soils.
In the Eastern United States, they are found in both coniferous and deciduous trees. 
In the Great Plains, they are found in cottonwoods or in grasses and weeds along roadsides and irrigation ditches.

Elliot's Short-Tailed Shrew is identified by its 32-red tipped teeth.  They eat insects, snails, earthworms, small invertebrates, salamanders, snakes, birds and small rodents.  These short-tailed shrews do not hibernate and can be seen day and night. The odor from its scent glands can be smelled during breeding season.

Usually a solitary animal, Elliot's short-tailed shrew adult males and females will come together to mate several times a year.  Five to six young are born hairless, pink and wrinkled in nests made of leaves, grasses and plant fibers.
The adult female takes care of her young for twenty days after which they stray from the nest and are on their own.
