“Tenrec is a genus of Insectivora, represented by one species, which is restricted to Madagascar, Bourbon, and Mauritius. It is the largest known insectivore, measuring from 12 to 16 inches in length; and it is probably the most prolific of mammals, since as many as 21 young are said to have been brought forth at a birth. It feeds chiefly on earth-worms, and is said to become dormant during the hottest part of the year."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
