Hello, Olingo, Thank you for this contribution to EOL. It would be terrific if you could cite your sources in the reference section of your contribution. I.e., instead of IUCN: http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/12908/0 please add the citation suggested at the bottom the IUCN page:
Helgen, K., Singadan, R., Wright, D., Allison, A. & Aplin, K. 2008. Pseudohydromys ellermani. The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Version 2014.3. . Downloaded on 17 November 2014.
Then, throughout your text, you can refer to this work as (Helgen et al. 2008) rather than IUCN.
Likewise for the Wikipedia article, which should be cited as follows:
Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, March 29, 2014. One-toothed shrew-mouse. Retrieved November 17, 2014 from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=One-toothed_shrew-mouse&oldid=601823054,
and referred to in your text as (Wikipedia 2014).
What is your reference for "It has the smallest number of teeth of any rodent - just four incisors and four molars."?
To consider: When adding an article in which much of the text is taken verbatim from an article (e.g. IUCN), it may be appropriate to list that source as the rights holder, add "text modified from IUCN" in the rights statement, and to license this article with the same cc-by-nc-sa license that the IUCN article originally used, rather than cc-by.
Also there's a little typo. Should be: "The Shaw mayer's shrew mouse IS a rodent."
Italicize species names: Pseudohydromys germani
