Venom like a cobra and an unstoppable appetite, all packed into a creature that weighs less than a penny? Yes!

Come hear about the remarkable life and times of the short-tailed shrew, which lives right beneath your feet. It might be even more unbelievable than the star-nosed mole.

It will be the topic of a presentation Tuesday at 7 p.m., at the Hancock Town Library, 25 Main St., Hancock.

Co-sponsored by the Hancock Town Library and the Harris Center, the event is free and open to all.
