The leaping devil is armed with long talons and a mouthful of sharp teeth.

The leaping devil, Daemonops rotundus, is a North American desert-dwelling red-toothed shrew with carnivorous habits.

It is one of the spitting featherfoot's chief predators and has a morphology and physiology similar to the featherfoot and to the other small desert rodents on which it preys.
