- Chiller - The Killer Shrews Part 01 The mid 1970s were a great time for Monster Kids if you lived in the New York / New Jersey area. You had Creature Features on WNEW Channel 5 and Chiller on WPIX Channel 11. Chiller showed a lot of low budget 1950s monster flicks, and I remember at Christmas time in 1975 watching 2 films Frankenstein Daughter one week and a few weeks later one I had never seen before The Killer Shrews. There were no VCRs or DVRs back then, so I decided to try to re-create a presentation of what one of those broadcasts was like. Since its the holiday season, and I remember seeing the film at Christmas time, I have included quite a few Christmas themed commercials. This re-creation is not entirely accurate, but I think it will give the viewer a taste of what one of those shows was like back in the mid-70s. So for those of you interested, sit back for the next hour and a half and enjoy CHILLER THE KILLER SHREWS

- Live Elephant Shrews at the Peabody Museum Elephant shrews are neither elephants nor shrews. The 16 living species of elephant shrew all have relatively large ears and eyes, a rat-like hairless tail, and long, thin legs that make them speedy runners. This pair of brothers was born at the Smithsonians National Zoo in Washington, DC, on February 4, 2007. Active most of the day, they spend their time foraging and gathering leaf litter for nests. In the wild, each elephant shrew can build six or seven nests in its home range, where it sleeps, cares for offspring, and evades predators. Elephant shrews eat beetles, termites, spiders and ants, and supplement their diet with fruits and seeds. In captivity they are fed crickets, mealworms and dry cat food supplemented with peanut oil. Elephant shrews are found throughout the forests, savannas, scrublands, and deserts of southern Africa and parts of North Africa. The Black and Rufous Giant Elephant Shrew lives only in forests and dense woodlands of eastern Kenya and Tanzania, habitat that is rapidly disappearing because of human activity. As a result, this extraordinary animal is at high risk of extinction in the wild. Video shot for "Travels in the Great Tree of Life," produced for the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History with the support from the US National Science Foundation through the CIPRes and Angiosperm Tree of Life Programs.

- Baby Elephant Shrew - February 2009 The Smithsonians National Zoo now has a new baby giant elephant-shrew—also known as a sengi. Keepers at the Small Mammal House did not know it had been born until they saw three elephant-shrews in the exhibit instead of two. The birth was planned as part of a captive breeding program, but baby elephant-shrews typically remain buried deep in their nest for the first several weeks of life. The baby, now about three-weeks-old, is busily exploring the exhibit with its parents. Elephant-shrews are neither elephant nor shrew, but belong to their own group of ancient mammals. They are distantly related to aardvarks, sea cows, like manatees and dugongs, hyraxes and elephants. Native to eastern Kenya and Tanzania, the black and rufous giant elephant-shrews is listed as vulnerable to extinction.

- Why Sengis (Elephant-Shrews) are Extreme Academy research associate Galen Rathbun provides a behind the scenes look into Academy collections and describes why sengis (also known as elephant-shrews) are extreme. There is perhaps no group of animals with a more colorful history of misunderstood ancestry than sengis - small mammals that sport the spindly legs and speed of an antelope, the flexible snout and long tongue of an anteater, and the tail of amouse. Recent DNA testing has revealed that sengis are actually part of an ancience group of African animals whose closest relatives include elephants, sea cows, and the aardvark.

- Baby Elephant Shrews - June 2009 The National Zoo's Small Mammal House is home to two baby black and rufous giant elephant-shrews—also known as sengis. Newborn elephant-shrews stay hidden away in nests built by their parents for 21 to 25 days. When the babies were first seen by keepers on May 18, staff estimated they were born in late April. They will reach adult size by the time they are six weeks old. In the meantime, visitors may see them nursing on their backs. Zoo staff are experts in breeding and caring for these fascinating animals—eight sengis have been born here since 2007 Elephant-shrews are neither elephants nor shrews, but belong to their own group of ancient mammals. They are distantly related to aardvarks, and have been classified in the superorder of mammals that includes manatees and dugongs, hyraxes, and elephants. Native to eastern Kenya and Tanzania, the black and rufous giant elephant-shrew is listed as vulnerable to extinction. Elephant-shrews are among the mere three percent of all mammal species that are monogamous, forming exclusive mating pairs. But they dont live as cozy couples sharing food and beds. The pair spends little time together, although they occupy the same territory, which they defend against all intruders—males chase out male interlopers, females chase out females. Even mating is a brief and fairly infrequent affair, and males dont help females care for their young.
