Order Insectivora

Insectivora is an order of placental mammals that includes hedgehogs, moles, solenodons, tenrecs, gymnures, and many shrews. Insectivora means "insect eaters."

Members of this order are primitive mammals that have a long, sensitive snout, teeth with sharp, conical cusps, and five clawed toes on each foot. These mammals eat insects.
