This is a Cuban Solendon, a rare insectivore from, of course, Cuba.

Animal Info - Cuban Solenodon
(Other Name: Almiqui)
Solenodon cubanus (Atopogale cubana)
Status: Endangered

The Cuban solenodon is an insectivore weighing about 1 kg (2.2 lb). It is found in dense, humid forests and brush country, as well as around plantations. Insects and spiders found in soil and leaf litter form most of its diet. The Cuban solenodon is mainly nocturnal, hiding during the day in rock clefts, hollow trees, or burrows which it excavates itself. Solenodons obtain food by rooting in the ground with their snouts and by tearing into rotten logs and trees with their foreclaws. The 1 or 2 young in a litter are born in a nesting burrow.

By 1970, some thought that the Cuban solenodon had become extinct, since no specimens had been found since 1890. However, three were captured in 1974 and 1975, and subsequent surveys showed that it still occurred in many places in central and western Oriente Province, at the eastern end of Cuba. However, it is rare everywhere.

Introduction of the Burmese mongoose into Cuba is believed to have accounted for the near-extermination of the solenodon. Currently, feral cats are probably the greatest threat, since the areas the solenodon inhabits now is not good mongoose habitat. In addition to predation by introduced predators, habitat loss is also a factor contributing to the solenodon's rarity. The Cuban solenodon is not hunted for food.
