SHREW CENTIPEDE

A mama shrew and her babies. The mammalian society says “Young shrews are occasionally observed following their mother in a ‘caravan’. Each shrew grasps the base of the tail of the preceding shrew so that the mother runs along with a line of young trailing behind. This behavior is often associated with disturbance of the nest and may also be used to encourage the young to explore their environment.”
