Unlike most mammals, shrews are venomous and use their bite to kill their usual prey of mice and other small rodents.
Shrews as Familiars
Shrews can serve as familiars for characters eligible to obtain familiars including arcane engineers, hexblades, mind weavers, shadowsworn, sorcerers, and wizards. Arcane casters with shrew familiars gain a poisonous bite attack that inflicts the same base damage and poison as the shrew's does. Shrews are suitable familiars for Tiny spellcasters.
