Galericinae or gymnures, also called a hairy hedgehogs or moonrats, is a subfamily of mammals in the family Erinaceidae and the order Erinaceomorpha. Although more closely related to hedgehogs, their resemblance is akin to rats. Gymnures are thought to have appeared in Eastern Asia before their closest relatives, and changed little from the original ancestor, which is thought to have been also the ancestor of the shrews.
