Shrews are found on every continent on the planet except for Antarctica and Australia. There are over 300 species across the globe with over 30 known to exist in North America. The most common shrew found in North America is the Common Shrew, Sorex cinereus. Also known as the Masked Shrew, these animals live in forested areas and are not normally known for affecting humans and ecosystem either detrimentally or beneficially on any grand scale. There are many others that do, however.
