Unknown spotting

Notes:

i found this skull in a tree hole. Someone had a good meal in there. No trace left of the body. My guess is this head belongs to a Musk Shrew. Need help.

:) i didn't know that shrews were not rodents.... thanks for the info corduneanuVlad. now this could be a field mouse.... very common other than musk shrews.
@ emily, emma was quick to invite to osteology section... felt nice to see such mission. i hope some osteologist can pin an id to it. :)

I was just going to invite you to the Osteology mission but it looks like someone already has!

I don't think it's a shrew because shrews are insectivores, this is the skull of a rodent.
