Giant shrew foundin remote forest

A giant elephant-shrew caught on camera in a remote African forest may be a new species.

The mammal has a long, flexible, trunk-like nose and was discovered in the Boni-Dodori forest in north-eastern Kenya.

Camera traps were set up in the remote forest after Grace Wambui, a fellow of the Zoological Society of London’s Edge of Existence programme, spotted a shrew she did not recognise.
