Bush Rat (Rattus fuscipes, Muridae: rats and mice) north-east NSW, Australia

The Rush Rat is rodent endemic to Australia that inhabits dense ground cover in the more humid areas of parts of the coast and nearby ranges of eastern and southern Australia. Not usually found in buildings, except casually near its normal habitat. While easy to catch in small mammal traps it is usually shy and hard to see when going about its business. Here filmed at night using infra-red illumination. Also see the related Swamp Rat at
