Description

Tentative ID of Woodrat as it has some fur on its tail. There were two of them eating the buds of a Rose of Sharon tree that hangs over the side of the driveway. I could not get a photo of both of them together.

Description

This little mouse, perhaps 2-3 inches long without the tail, was foraging for food in the cabin at night. Although perhaps a House Mouse would be the expected species, the eyes look big and the tail somewhat bicolored, so I'm wondering if this could be Peromyscus instead?
