How much does a Aegialomys xanthaeolus weight?

It is hard to guess what a Aegialomys xanthaeolus weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Aegialomys xanthaeolus (Oryzomys xanthaeolus) on average weights 79 grams (0.17 lbs).

The Aegialomys xanthaeolus is from the family Cricetidae (genus: Oryzomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 55 cm (1′ 10″).

As a reference: An average human weights in at 62 kg (137 lbs) and reaches an average size of 1.65m (5′ 5″). Humans spend 280 days (40 weeks) in the womb of their mother and reach around 75 years of age.

Aegialomys xanthaeolus, also known as the yellowish oryzomys or yellowish rice rat, is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae. It belongs to the genus Aegialomys in tribe Oryzomyini, which was not recognized as distinct from Oryzomys until 2006. It is found in coastal Ecuador and Peru. Though it is currently the only formally recognized mainland species of Aegialomys, at least one other exists. The specific name is sometimes incorrectly spelled “xantheolus”, without the second “a”.
