Macroscelids (Sengis or Elephant shrews) are not shrews. They form an order of mammals that is endemic to Africa. A shared interest in the study of these distinctive animals is what brought us together, a few Congolese and South African colleagues and me, in the forest not far from Kisangani. It's well worth remembering that science also brings you closer to people.
