My name is Peanut – (silly people could not find a nicer name for me??)
Wife was not impressed when put name down ending with "mouse" - but she also thinks it is cute. He fell out of the roof when eyes were still closed. Now he is a real busybody.

It is so tiny...
Well I think the eyes are not huge enough for a Bushbaby.
How about a Woodland Dormouse (Graphiurus murinus)?
...grey with dark mask around eyes.White below jaws.Nocturnal.Arboreal.Often shelters in roofs.Eats insects,seeds.Whidespread exept arid West....

Add to that diet - pronutro cereal - works well to get all sorts of young up and running.

Way to go, KDU! :D

Well, at least I guessed the mousepart right :lol: I was having serious doubts, especially when I realised that the bit showing to the right of the person's finger could actually be a fluffy tail, which pouched mice don't have.

The Dutch name for them is Dwergrelmuis, and they are also called Zevenslaper (= sevensleeper).
