Rodent in Paramaribo outskirts
« on: Fri, 23 August 2019, 11:26:35 PM »
I found this cute little rat-like rodent at night in the outskirts of Paramaribo. Body length was probably around 15 cm, at least over 10 cm. The rest of the tail is not visible on the original photo, and I have no other images. It was in a small tree next to a ditch and climbed further up trying to escape my flashlight, but then saw no way to move further without jumping, which it wouldn't or couldn't. After I left, I believe I saw it running away over the ground. I'm not even sure of the family at this moment, although I don't think it's Muridae.

Cheers, Auke
