There's a shrew in my pool !!

I found this shrew chilling in our pool, its quite a adapted swimmer to my surpise :)

What is a shrew?

A shrew is a small animal like a mouse with a long nose or a bad-tempered unpleasant woman lol

Shrews in general vary in size between 10 to 30 cms. They feed on insects but are also known to feed on seeds and shoots.
There are more than 200 known species of shrews which are distributed around the world; except Australia and New Zealand, the West Indies, and most of South America.
