Fierce New Animal Discovered

Dr. Galen Rathburn and a team of scientists have confirmed that a strange animal found in Tanzania is a new species of Elephant Shrew. This cat-sized fellow is no relation of the common shrew, but is rather part of the same world of animals as elephants or hyraxes. Each one of these fellows seems to have an individual colour scheme, but they all use their long nose to implacably hoover up insects.
