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.

Hey, I don't know you very well, but that doesn't matter at all. Today should be an amazing, filled with sunshine, day for you! It's really hot here in Canada, not sure about America, but that's not the point. *Sweatdrops.* Happy birthday, and have a wonderful 14th journey around the Sun!   [s:p/1m4y-en] [s:p/1mka-en] [s:p/1kdz] [s:p/1kqx] [s:p/1kok] [s:p/1kl6] [s:p/zql] [s:p/zxn] [s:p/1nnb]
