Been feeding these guys outside the house I'm staying at for about 6 weeks, they're getting pretty tame and let me get quite close now..

Are they any specific species??

I don't recognise them but they are very cute!

The rat and mouse family is so massive you might have a hard time identifying their exact species - be interesting to see if anyone knows :2thumb:

Yea I'm sure that there were bigger ones before, now these slightly smaller ones are coming up to eat (but the bigger ones haven't been around for a while now) and today I've seen some babies!!!

I've only ever seen 3 or 4 up together, so not sure if there are lots or the same ones who keep coming and going..

Weirdly the babies seem more cautious than the adults, but as you can see they're letting me get pretty close!

I'll try and get more tomorrow.. glad you all like them, I've enjoyed trying to get closer and closer each day.. I have a better camera but it makes a lot of noise, so i think I'm going to try and get them used to the noisy camera and get some higher quality/resolution shots!
