First ever footage of the Hispaniolan solenodon has emerged from a conversation group working in the Dominican Republic. The Hispaniolan solenodon was thought to be extinct due to habitat loss, but this video proves otherwise. The shrew-like creature is nocturnal and is believed to eat insects. Like certain shrews and the duck-billed platypus, it can administer poison, in this case via specialized teeth. The solenodon is believed to be the last living species in an evolutionary line of mammals that dates back 65 million years.
National Geographic has a more exclusive video on their website that shows the little thing making squeaking noises as well.
