"An inhabitant of Oregon's moist streamsides, thickets, and woods, the Pacific Shrew does best in areas with brushy vegetation and fallen decaying logs. There it finds centipedes, slugs, and snails, insect larvae, amphibians, fungi, and some vegetation for food. This shrew can catch flying prey, which it locates by sound. As shrews go, this is a large one, with pale, reddish-brown fur."
