What type of baby rodent is this?

A friend of mine found this baby abandoned and after several hours the mother had still not come back for the baby. I offered to take care of it as I've already raised baby feeder mice before. I'm just wondering if someone can tell me if this is a baby mouse or rat or something else? She looks different from the most recent mouse I raised from a baby that's why I'm not sure, she could just be a different type but I'd just like to know if possible.

Update:

Pictures are down below it wouldn't let me post in the question

    For its larger head, I would suspect a rat. Already a bit fuzzy so maybe about a week old.

    Rearing them is hardly different than something like a rescue feeder mouse.

    It looks like a baby rat, I suggest bringing it to a wildlife centre where they csn find a surrogate to teach it how to survive and also keep it alive

    Throw it in the trash. Wild mice and rats carry and spread all manner of dangerous and deadly diseases and parasites.
