I am working on my trip report from my trip to Ecuador last October/November. I still had some pictures of a few small mammals and on the chance it might be possible to ID them based on my pictures in combination with the location I thought it would be a good thing I check with you guys first before I put them all in my trip report as unidentified. I do not own a good mammal guide to Ecuador and I was not able to get anywhere with iNaturalist. I appreciate any input!
De first 3 mammals were photographed at about 1300m at Maquipucuna Lodge
Mammal 1 (picture 1): a bat literally hanging out in the canopy of the trees near the lodge. There was an identical looking one next to it.
Mammal 2 (picture 2): a mouse, seen on a short night walk not far from the lodge.
Mammal 3 (picture 3): a mouse opossum, seen not far from mammal 2. Based on my previous experiences with mouse opossums I suspect a conclusive identification to species level will be impossible.
Mammal 4 (picture 4 and 5): Small rodent. I have a bit more hopes for this one since it was photographed in quite a distinct habitat: behind Tambo Condor Restaurant at about 3000m, it was feeding on fallen bird seed. The area around it was mostly grasland with just a few trees. It seems to have a short tail.
Edit: I see uploading pictures did not go exactly as planned. It hope it’s still obvious which is which.
