how disappointing!

I thought it was an interesting escapee.

back legs

The bald tail makes me think rat but those back legs are very long for a rat...even a scrawny youngster. Can't think of anything else it could be though.

Baby rat

This is a very young baby rat, the bald tail is the big give-away. There is nothing wrong with the legs they always look far too big on young rodents.
