Order - Insectivora

(Small Bug Eating Mammals)

The order Insectivora in the past was used as a scrap basket for a variety of small to very small, relatively unspecialized, insectivorous mammals. The taxonomy has been refined in recent years. As the classifications for this order are adjusted, we as a zoo will update to match the accepted taxonomy. For now, our exhibits will follow past groupings.
