Solenodon hunt: 'The people don't know they exist'
Scientists are in the Dominican Republic in an attempt to save one of the world's most strange and ancient mammals - the Hispaniolan solenodon.
This creature has been around since the time of the dinosaurs, and is the only mammal that can inject venom through its teeth.
But, says Jorge Brocca, a member of The Last Survivors team and director of the Hispaniolan Ornithological Society, awareness of this endangered species' plight is low.
Few people in the Dominican Republic have ever seen a solenodon, and many have never even heard of them.
