Bush Rat?

bush ratGreetings for a very happy new year every one! This photo, like two others, was taken and given to me by my friend Shan. I uploaded the photo here for an identification, and here's what Prasantha  there says ".......Probably juvenile of Galunda elioti [E: Bush rat; S: Panduru-miya]
If you can provide me its measurements and front view of the incisor, I can seek expert advice..."  But alas, since I didn't see the critter my self, there's no telling the size and other details. Does any of you guys know this creature?

  8. What a cute little thing!! I wonder how big it is? The name "Bush Rat" brings to mind a large rodent, and something not quite this adorable. :D

  9. Hi all,thanks for stopping by and a happy new year to you too! Amaris, I'm afraid I don't know how big it was as it wasn't me who took the photo.
