This is a grey-faced sengi, Rhynchocyon udzungwensis, a new species of giant elephant shrew that has been described in the February issue of Journal of Zoology (Lond.) (on whose editorial board I sit). It's a 700g beastie, so it is hefty for an elephant shrew.

That's great news! I'll make sure I check out the issue in which it's described.
I can't believe how much that looks like a rhinogradentian Snouter.
that sengi IS really cool...I could not help but post on this as well: added a video and some shots from the expedition.
thanx I can't believe how much that looks like a rhinogradentian Snouter.
