Smallish nocturnal rodents climbing trees in Miami?
A quick question – I was in Florida at the weekend and on Saturday night I was staking out a Florida Bonneted Bat roost (and I saw some.. trip report to follow).
Wile I was waiting for the bats I saw a rodent moving through the upper branches of a large strangler fig 30 minutes after sunrise. I didn’t want to take my eye off the bats so didn’t manage to get a decent look…(a bat in the roost, is worth two in the bush!) .. but what could it have been? Any suggestions … it seemed quite a bit too small for a Woodrat (or Rattus sp)… perhaps a Southern Flying Squirrel? Anyone….
