ID question India, Soft-furred Field Rat?

Fieldrat3

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone can identify this rat I filmed waaaaay back in Keoladeo Ghana National Park (Bharatpur) in India. I think it was in 2008.

Is this a Soft-furred Field Rat?

The head and ears:

Field rat 3

A frontal view of a the head:

Field rat 2

Colour of the tail:

Field rat 4

And the tail length (two stills):

Field rat 5

Field rat 6

Hope you can help me!

Best regards,

Pieter de Groot Boersma

    Very hard to tell from those pictures but it looks more like an Indian Bush Rat to me (Golunda ellioti)
