Insectivora are Mammals that belong to subclass of real mammals Placentalia. Such as Rodentia they belong to a gruop of animals that we call „small mammals“. Weight range of this group of animals is from 1.5 to 5 kg. With their unusual tendency they contribute to destruction of harmful insects, their larves, snails and other lower animals. They also prevent proliferation of small rodents. Their bodies are usually tight and head is elongated. In this work has been presented a short review of Croatian insectivora. In Croatia there are three families of Insectivora: Shrews (Soricidae), Moles (Talpidae) and Hedgehogs (Erinaceidae). Shrews are presented with four genders: Crocidura (white-toothed shrews), Neomys (water shrews), Sorex and Suncus. Genders Crocidura and Neomys have two species in Croatia, Suncus has only one and Sorex has three. Moles are presented with two species, same as hedgehogs.
