»Michael Rothman DescriptionThe Cuban Solenodon and its close relative, the Hispaniolan Solenodon are extremely rare Insectivores that have both been considered extinct a number of times in the previous century. Low population levels characterize the two species. The Cuban Solenodon is believed to be restricted to Oriente Province in the extreme Eastern region of Cuba.
