A new species of mammal, resembling a giant elephant shrew has been discovered in Tanzania.
The bizarre-looking creature, dubbed Rhynochocyon Udzungwensis, is a type of giant elephant shrew, or sengi.
But despite its name, the creature, is not actually related to shrews. It is actually more closely related to another group of African mammals, which include elephants, sea cows, aardvarks and hyraxes.
