In order to provide information on care, we'll have to first identify the species of this little rodent.

If possible, a photo would be the easiest way. If you can get one, you can upload it by clicking on the little green tree icon in the tool bar.

Otherwise, some additional information will help.

How long is the animal from nose to tail?

Where did you find it?

Is it tame?

Thank you.
