IMO it's just a domestic black fur rat.Made bigger by the fact that the rat is in the dominant ground and the man in the back ground.IMO head,ears,tail not big enough.Plus Gambian Pouched Rats have a white end to the tail.

and if it was really that big it'd have a bit of weight in it; he wouldn't be able to hold it as loosely as he is, doesn't seem like he's got much of a grip on anything.

I'd agree with that...made bigger by the fact its closer to the camera.......a mate of mine had african pouched rats & they looked nothing like that.
