Default Mouse or Mole or something else ??

I just found some little dead animal in my basement. I caught him on
my little sticky pad I use to catch little bugs or spiders. I thought
for sure it was a baby mouse, it looks identical, until a close up
revealed that it had a beak on it's face ??? Just like a little bird
would have. What type of animal looks identical to a mouse but has a
beak on it does anyone know ???
Thanks.

Use google, yahoo, whatever...
use the SEARCH FOR IMAGES feature.
Search for the words mouse mole, etc.
Sounds like it may be a mole. *Moles have very strong claws too.

Dont sound like there's enough for a complete meal though lol


Sounds like a mole and the one I saw in my back yard sure didnt look
like the picture given on that website but maybe there are different
types.
