Bone Clones® Tree Shrew Skull Cast (Replica), BC-083
2.0" x 1.0" x 1.0"
The tree shrew, which resembles a very small squirrel with a long snout, is not a shrew and does not entirely live in trees. More closely related to primitive prosimians, they have a higher brain-to-body mass ratio than humans. They possess large eyes and use their clawed forepaws for holding food. Tree shrews are active diurnal omnivores. Highly territorial, they spend their days screaming and fighting with others of their kind. The offspring are kept in a nest separate from that of the mother, who suckles them only every 48 hours. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
