The word shrew can be used as a noun and when you are using the word, you are referring to a small animal which looks like a mouse and has a long nose. But in old fashioned form of English the word also describes a kind of woman who is considered as bad-tempered and unpleasant one and considered as a nagging one.

When you are using the word for the animals, they certainly look like mouse but they do not belong to the rodent family. They have five feet and have five clawed legs and in the rodents the toes are four. The kingdom from which these creatures belong to is Chordata and their class is mammalia. The order is Soricomorpha and the kingdom of the animal is animalia.
