American Shrew Mole
It has dark grey fur, a long flattened snout and has a long bristled tail. It is about 10 cm in length including a 3 cm long tail and weighs about 10 g. Its front paws are smaller and do not face outwards from the body as in other North American moles and so are more similar to those of shrews. They have 36 teeth, which are white-tipped, unlike those of North American shrews, which are reddish.
Females have litters with 1 to 4 young.
