Adorable but Deadly!

One of the world’s most bizarre animals is called the Hispaniolan Solenodon.

It looks a little bit like an overgrown shrew – it’s quite big, has a long thin snout and can attack passing insects with its deadly poisonous bite!

This nocturnal animal can only be found in two countries of the world: the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

Researchers say more needs to be done to protect these creatures as they are under threat from deforestation and hunters.
