Range Description

Crocidura hirta is widespread in Central Africa, East Africa and southern Africa. It has been recorded from Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. Earlier records from Kenya and Somalia probably refer to other Crocidura species, with additional research needed to confirm this. It occurs from several hundred meters asl up to between 1,200 and 1,400 m asl in South Africa.
