I know it's been awhile since this was posted but that looks like it might be a baby rabbit?  Please let me know if you ever found out what it was.

What did this animal turn out to be? We just found the same one in our yard. Did he survive?

Hi, I believe that is most likely a guinea pig baby.

See a baby rat would be a little bit smaller than that at two days.

The stub (tail) would be a little bit longer if it were either a mouse or a rat.

I have two guinea pigs, and that newborn has a compatible body shape like mine.

If you'd like to know what gender it is then take two fingers and gently squeeze between the bottom hole.

To get an incubator, go to a near by petsmart, petco, or pet store near your home.

Hope this helped.

I can answer any question you got about Guinea pigs,Rats, Hamsters, Mice,Chinchilla's,Gerbils,Hedgehogs, Squirrels, Rabbits...Basically all RODENTS . Feeding, breeding, sexing,cages,illness,places on the internet to learn more, ect.


Right now I have 2 hamsters(hammy and fluffy), 1 rat(Christopher my baby), and 5 ferrets(Oscar, Antonio, Prince, Bobo, and Princess). In 2009, we had 106 rats rescued in our rescue here in Lake City, along with 5 rabbits, 15+ guinea pigs, and hamsters here and there. I have had rodents for quite some time and even run my own pages and a rescue related to rodents. Each year we get several rodents that come in our rescue. From rabbits, rats, mice, gerbils, hamsters, and even exotics. It is fun and where many think that only cats and dogs need a place to come we often forget the little guys.

My education is based on rescuing rodents with the local Suwannee Humane Society, raising my own rodents through the years, and being around others in my area that also raise and breed animals. I also run my own local rodent rescue called Paws of Love Animal rescue. We take only rodents (and some rabbits) even if they are caught wild.
