The Giant solenodon (Solenodon arredondoi) is an extinct species of soricomorph that occurred on western Cuba. A larger animal than the still-extant cuban solenodon, the species is believed to have been eradicated through habitat destruction and the introduction of predatory dogs to Cuba by pre-Columbian people.
