Water shrew studies

Some quick studies of a water shrew. A volunteer doing pond dipping at the local nature reserve  found this recently deceased beastie. I took it home and managed a few quick studies but it was getting a bit whiffy... Did you know it has venomous saliva? Wonderful to find, I have never seen one before!
