I was in the woods today, and me and my friend found an animal?

Were not sure what it is. It's really small and its a brownish color. It looks sort of like a baby beaver but it does not have the tail of a beaver, it has a rat looking tail. But it's NOT a rat. It's really soft, and it does not bite, its also really fast. Does anyone know what it is?!

    You shouldn't take animals from the wild... imagine if that animal was a mother and now you have taken it all the babies are starving and will die.

    Wild animals are meant to be in the wild.. no matter what it is.

    if it looks like ^ that. if not, maybe a wild rat, mouse... do you have a picture of it? that would really help to see what it is...

    anyways based on what you said i'd guess baby muskrat. they look a lot like beavers, but with rat-ish tails.
