Pygmy Shrew is the name of a short funny animation made by The POX, a group of three United Kingdom based comedians. Right now, the Shrew has been downloaded over 700,000 times implying that it’s one of the most successful and long lasting animations on the Internet.

It’s based on the life of a real creature: the Pygmy Shrew really is one of the world’s smallest mammals. The animation derives its humour from the great difficulty of being a tiny mammal in a world of fierce predators and hazards.

You can find the Pygmy Shrew and some other animations by this group by doing a Google search. There are far more web sites about this fictional Shrew than the Real one!
