Just like those Victorian photos of dead babies you can keep on your sideboard to depress you, here is a montage of dead shrews for the curious, the macabre and those who don’t know how to play Scrabble on Facebook yet.
Exhibit A – Dead Shrew with twenty pence (except now that I look at it, I believe it is a foreign coin of indeterminate denomination)
Note the fact that this shrew looks rather like a penguin. Given the other shrew’s strange names it could indeed be the lesser penguin shrew, with luminous yellow fangs.
In the course of my extensive research I also found this:
Exhbit b: someone randomly poking a syringe up a dead shrew’s arse. Just for fun. Apparently it’s the number one hobby in Nebraska.
And that’s all from the shrew mortuary today.
