Asian musk shrews (Suncus murinus) originated from the Indian subcontinent, ranging from southern Asia and Afghanistan to the Malay archipelago and southern Japan. This species has been introduced into northern and eastern Africa and the Middle East. Asian musk shrews are associated with forest environments, but are commonly found in household communities, and are considered commensals of humans.
