Rat

This photo had me look very close, the large ears, pale feet and grey colour had me thinking black rat, an amazing sighting if it were.

However, the tail is too short and thick to be a black rat. The muzzle is not pointy enough as well.

Interesting thought though, just how similar these species are and how much they overlap.
