Giant Elephant Shrew

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.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
