The slender shrew (Sorex gracillimus) is a species of shrew. An adult slender shrew has a weight of 1.5-5.3 grams and a body length of 4.7-6.0 centimeters, with a tail of 4-5 centimeters; this makes it one of the smaller shrews found in its range. It is distributed across northeastern North Korea, Hokkaidō, and the Russian Far East including the Kuril Islands.[3]
