Eulipotyphla is an order of mammals that includes moles, hedgehogs and shrews. These species were previously assigned to the order Insectivora, together with other small mammals such as tenrecs and golden moles amongst others. In GB, there are three families: Erinaceidae (hedgehog), Talpidae (mole) and the Soricidae (6 shrews). Two of these shrews, Greater white-toothed and Lesser white-toothed shrews only occur on Channel Islands. All these species are small, ground-dwelling or subterranean mammals, and they mainly feed on invertebrates.
