Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Checkered Elephant Shrew or Checkered Sengi (Rhynchocyon cirnei) is a species of elephant shrew in the Macroscelididae family.Elephant shrews or jumping shrews are small insectivorous mammals native to Africa, belonging to the family Macroscelididae, in the order Macroscelidea. Their traditional common English name comes from a fancied resemblance between their long noses and the trunk of an elephant, and an assumed relationship with the true shrews (family Soricidae) in the order Insectivora because of their superficial similarities. As it has become plain that the elephant shrews are unrelated to the shrews, the biologist Jonathan Kingdon has proposed that they instead be called sengis,a term derived from the Bantu languages of Africa.
