An extremely high metabolic rate forces the diminutive short-tailed shrew to eat constantly. Small invertebrates comprise most of its diet, but venom glands allow it to dispatch prey animals much larger than itself, such as mice and voles.

The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals
as they now look upon the murder of men.

The northern short-tailed shrew (Blarina brevicauda) is the largest shrew in the genus Blarina, and occurs in the northeastern region of North America. It is a semifossorial, highly active, and voracious insectivore and is present in a variety of habitats. It is notable in that it is one of the few venomous mammals. The specific epithet, brevicauda, is a combination of the Latin brevis and cauda, meaning "short tail". Order: Eulipotyphla, Family: Soricidae.
