But from the discription and explanations, I have concluded that you are speaking about the MONGOOSE.
It's definitely not a mongoose Prof. Too bad you can't see it, it's like yr cute little rhodent of the oversized variety.

Be nice to know how tall, they all look pretty much look the same, basic rodent. It's like trying to tell the difference between a standard poodle and a toy with no size reference. Pretty much the same basic shape. The ones in the background do look a little stouter. I suspect it might be a pet that was smuggled in a pocket then escaped. That argues agaist prairie dog or ground hog, they are more the size of a small to largish cat, not a hamster.

No one has suggested the lovable nutria or noticed that the creature in the picture is lactating!

And what are the critters in the extreme background? Pups?

Hm the zoo here has nutrias and they're chunkier and hairier, with coarser hair too (and darker yes). Yogagal already noticed she must just have had a litter on post #7.

Wonder if we're ever gonna solve this one (and if we're not being taken for a giant ride).

Hi snowcrab, i made the photo because my wife just loved this animal (first love ....lol) so I tried to come so close as possible and click the pic.

I just love to read the reply frm people who are trying out to give this animal a name.... I think I will send the pic also to a big Zoo here in the netherlands maybe they can tell me what "her" name is .
If you can't stand the heat ...don't come near me...

Size of a large cat or small dog? 17 inches would be around the length of you fore arm. Quite a variety of sizes those ground squirrels come in.
