Hi Mike,

Have a look at Pouched Mouse Saccostomus compestris.

White underparts, size about right, tail length looks right (tail should be pale tipped?) and distribution looks good.

Again, just a suggestion, not a definitive ID.

Looks a good shout, thanks Dewi. I want a live one when I go back. :-)
