Origin
===Origin===
{{bulbanews|On the Origin of Species: Sandshrew and Sandslash}}
Sandshrew may be based on the {{wp|armadillo}}, a mammal that curls up into a ball, has sharp claws, and lives in desert regions. Both Sandshrew and {{p|Sandslash}} are mentioned to have poisonous claws, similar to how some species of the {{wp|shrew}} are poisonous. Sandshrew also closely resembles a {{wp|pangolin}}.
 
Alolan Sandshrew seems to also be based on an {{wp|igloo}} and a {{wp|Curling#Curling stone|curling stone}}.
