Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A group or series of insectivorous mammals; a division of the suborder Bestiæ, or Insectivora vera, having short molars whose crowns present one V-shaped transverse ridge, a formation characteristic of the insectivores of tropical regions, which are thus contrasted with temperate and northerly forms (Dilambdodonta). The Madagascar tenrecs, the African golden moles, and the West Indian solenodons are examples. See cuts under agouta, Chrysochloris, sokinah, and tenrec.
