I took this pictures some hour ago. Here (Argentina) this small rodent is called "cuis", sorry i don't know its name in english.

It was pretty shy and too fast so it took me around 20 minutes to get these pictures! But i think it worth it.

And he LOOKS pretty shy:!:

Very cute!

It appears to be some sort of Ground Squirril:?:

Oh crap. Do you know how many times I checked the spelling of "poisonous" in the thread from Twisted puppy?

I let my guard down for five seconds and...:?:

Well, two things to cover myslef in case I'm wrong...:G

"Ground Squirril," is a entire class of rodents. In North America there must be twenty or more different species.

South America also has a whole bunch of Mammals called "Marsupials." In NOrth America there are very few of them. The Opposum is one. So for all I know it could be some type of Marsupial that "Looks" like a Ground squirril.

But it sure is cute! Nice shots!
