Look at the long whiskers of the shrew.

After uploading the photos to the computer I could finally examine the results. I consulted some books to determine the creature that looked to me like either a 'Greater White-toothed Shrew' or a 'Lesser White-toothed Shrew'. These two are very hard to tell apart and even the books told me that both species looked very much alike. But as the Lesser White-toothed Shrew is quite rare in my parts of the country, I voted for the Greater White-toothed Shrew. This was later confirmed by Peter van der Linden. Apparently it does happen more often: a shrew taking a stroll in one's garden. In September 2004 there was another one. Walking about in the grass without being scared of us. Before Hania could get her camera the animal left the grass and went in between the tiles in front of our garden shed. Under the shed shrews have nests constantly. We still do not know what it was looking for between the tiles. We offered the animal a worm, but even though it was looked at, it was not touched, leave alone eaten. After much more ado between the tiles, the animal disappeared under the garden shed.

Tiny hands and feet of the shrew look really adorable.

The Taming of the Shrew - Wikipedia

The first encounter between Petruchio and Kate takes the form of a physical performance act, which heightens this tension. Overall, the performances of Edwards and Balbaki are honest, thought-provoking and “modern”. Balbaki plays the coarse suitor and abusive husband, and Edwards in a stellar performance plays the initially fiery Kate, who is later said to be “tamed”. It is emotively dire and shocking, and this production does not try to shy away, erase or undercut the themes which make this play so problematic for a modern audience.

For two nights only, the annual Lent Term BME production have endeavoured to put on what can be argued as being one of Shakespeare's most problematic 'comedies’: The Taming Of The Shrew. When Petruchio (played by Danny Baalbaki) takes a bet that he can marry and tame the notorious “shrew”, Kate (Priya Edwards), he finds that he may have bitten off more than he can chew, as sparks fly when the couple meet with their ensuing struggle for supremacy.

The Taming of the Shrew - SparkNotes

In the morning my wife went to the bedroom to investigate the situation. As soon as she entered the room she saw the mouse very much careless if not indifferent on the floor. It was surprisingly easy to catch the mouse by putting a bucket upside down on the floor. Gotcha! It couldn't run away any more. But how to get rid of the mouse with a bucket on top of it? And of course Hania insisted on taking photos of the creature... The trick we used was similar to the method of catching insects with a cup. Very slowly and cautiously we slid a flat glass plate onder the bucket and after turning this contraption we could see through the glass a shrew (not a mouse!) sitting in the bucket. A temporary shelter for the creature to get observed and photographed by us!

Theatre: Review: The Taming of the Shrew February 27, 2018;

Great White-toothed Shrews can be found in the whole of Europe - with exception for real cold parts in the North and in the mountains - and in North Africa. In the past people thought that shrews occured in small numbers. Now we know better: there are lots of them but because of their habits and conspicuous behaviour they just don't come to our notice.

Taming of the Shrew: Kate's Monologue

Although shrews are insectivorous, their main source of food is the earthworm. Furthermore they eat snails and slugs and insects. The animals are very small and strikingly busy. This is why they need a lot of food - each day they manage eating twice their own body weight, which comes to 20 grams of food daily. Shrews can live without food for just a few hours and dy of hunger easily. Shrews are also being eaten, especially by barn-owls. Other birds-of-prey don't eat many shrews and carnivors avoid them at all. Cats for instance may play with a shrew and may even kill it, but they'll never eat it. It's because of the shrews nasty scent. Why this doesn't bother barn-owls is not known yet, but Barn-owls themselves also stink horribly.

Now that Hania had already taken several photos and were quite satisfied with the results, she came with an idea of getting an unconventional shot of the creature. We turned the bucket upside down again so that the shrew stood with its feet on the glass plate. It resulted in the following quite remarkable picture.
