They weight in at 62 kg (137 lbs), which is obviously highly individual, and reach an average age of 75 years.

The masked white-tailed rat (Uromys hadrourus) is a species of rodent in the family Muridae.It is found only in Australia, in north-east Queensland.Descriptive English common names for this species include Masked White-tailed Rat and Thornton Peak Uromys. During the 1990s there was a push for such names to be replaced with indigenous Australian names, and accordingly, in 1995 the Australian Nature Conservation Agency published recommendations for the common names of rodents. They failed to identify any indigenous Australian names for U. hadrourus, so recommended the adoption of the name Kuku, the Kuku-Yalanki name for any rat. However this recommendation was not prescriptive, and it remains to be seen to what extent it will be adopted.
