Some sort of Native Rat

I failed to take note of what this was, but given I had to shoot at 1/2sec hand-held, iso1600 to get him, I'm not surprised I forgot to shoot the sign too. The window was grubby so it's not as clear as it could have been.

    Well I did rest the lens on a railing, but still had to steady it myself.
    Thanks :)
    Turned out quite ok, bit soft, but given the conditions, quite acceptable.

    looks like our UK woodmouse, only a jumping version, well that would figure from the land of the Roo,
    cute though

    Cute indeed - there were several of them in the enclosure, but this one was the only one that would sit still in the relatively bright light (very relative - 'tweren't bright at all really).
    'twas tricky, that's for sure - didn't expect it to come out as well as it did.
    Thanks Andrew :)
    I believe you're right Helen (the bit about the jumping that is).

    Indeed they were :) Very dark in there though, just as well they sat still for me.
