The white-toothed shrew likes to live near human settlements and will often winter in houses. Unlike mice, however, they do not eat grains. Rather, their diet consists exclusively of other animals, such as earthworms, woodlice, spiders and sometimes even small vertebrates and juvenile mice. Even carrion is considered something they would not shy away from. In winter, they especially enjoy morsels of meat, cheese and bacon left out by humans.
