Dear Taxacomers

Sorry to bug you for the ID of this rodent (see the picture attached), which was brought to my lab by one of my students.
It is dormice-like and said to be native to South America, but I don't think it's related to dormice according to my very limited knowledge about mammals.

If anyone could help to give some directions I would be very appreciated.

best regards
