Looking somehow like a simple mouse, the Bushveld Sengi (Elephantulus intufi), belongs to the strange little mammal order Macroscelidea, (20 species). All the sengis/elephant shrews alive today and fossil, are distributed in Africa. Sengis have short arms and a very elongated snout and hind legs. My friends and I would watch them in the Etosha National Park during our trip through Namibia in 2005.
