“Do Shrews Swim?” – A Field Diary Extract from the Outeniqua Mountains

We are in the Outeniqua Mountains above George to conduct small mammal surveys as part of a project intended to map the distribution of species of conservation concern across South Africa. Our target species is the Long-tailed Forest Shrew (Myosorex longicaudatus), listed as Endangered and without a single confirmed record since the 1990s.
