Found baby animal abandoned

Hello gentlemen, could any of you tell me if this looks like a baby Rat or Squirrel.
me and my buddies were hanging out by a storm drain and one of my friends saw what looked to be 3 dead animals. we checked it out and 2 had passed away but the 3rd one was still alive and kicking. my buddy is now taking care of him, I just want to know if it looks like a baby Squirrel, Rat or other animal. Thanks

    that's a rat, look at the butt and tail

    >my buddy is now taking care of him,
    afraid to say that a newborn pup has a very high chance of dying on it's own, much less after being abandoned and under going malnutrition

    your friend has to whip out a milk-like solution for the rat and find a way a pipet it into the poor critter's mouth. and even then, there's a 90% chance they'll be dead within the week

    probably a rat or squirrel pup, I'm thinking rat cause of the nails
    It'll probably die, if it was on the floor it was touching bacteria, it would have a resistance if it was still in it's nest because the mother would have produced antibodies to the surface while pregnant.
    Try to touch it as little as possible, put it on clean surfaces, needs to be somewhere warm so it doesn't waste it's own fat. It'll need food non-stop.
    Odds are it'll die
    Don't bother mercy killing it, when it dies just throw it into some greenery out of sight, something will eat it.

    100% a baby rat. Keep it, they are really smart and personable

      It'll probably die, odds are he'll get a heat pad and cook it to death. Considering it was found in a drain I wouldn't even feed it to a snake, too unclean.

    Go to the pet store and get a heating pad and some kitten milk (they normally don't have rodent milk replacement but cat milk powder normally does the trick). Then get some soft bedding and put it over the heating pad. After that just google how to take care of a baby rodent I did it before and the little guy grew up strong.

      I've done it too, except I intentionally stole the owl eggs to introduce them into my property so they would kill the rodents ravishing my gardens.

    Hopefully your friend knows what he's doing, caring for a critter that young can be tricky.

    leaning more towards rat, squirrels tend to be a bit larger.

    Could be either. If you found it in a storm drain I'm going to guess that it's a rat. It looks much too young to realistically care for and will probably die.

    Why are you handling a wild animal without gloves

      It's my buddy's hand. I didn't touch him. we also did not have gloves at the time and he took the animals life in priority over the chance of disease.

      What was he supposed to do? Go to the fricking store to buy gloves instead of just picking up the dying baby animal that's to young to even think about biting him anyway? Jfc.

          Newborn animals are very clean no matter what species they are. Even if it wasn't a baby the only way to really get sick is to have an open wound come into contact with it's body, to rub your eyes directly after handling, or to consume it's feces. I'd be wary if the animal was able to bite or scratch but it's clearly too young to do any of that.
