Brief Summary

The Inyo Shrew, also known as the Great Basin Dwarf Shrew, is a tiny, pale gray animal, only slightly larger than the closely-related Dwarf Shrew. Both species are found in the mountains of the Southwest, but their ranges are not known to overlap. Inyo Shrews, like other small shrews, molt twice a year, getting a summer coat in mid- to late July and shedding it for a winter coat a few months later.
