Animal Weight

How much does a Agile kangaroo rat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Agile kangaroo rat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Agile kangaroo rat (Dipodomys agilis) on average weights 60 grams (0.13 lbs).

The Agile kangaroo rat is from the family Heteromyidae (genus: Dipodomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 7.9 cm (0′ 4″). On average, Agile kangaroo rats can have babies 2 times per year with a litter size of 2.

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.

The agile kangaroo rat (Dipodomys agilis) is a species of rodent in the family Heteromyidae. It is found in Baja California, Mexico and southern California in the United States.Relatively little information has been published on the natural history, life history, ecology, or behavior of the agile kangaroo rat. The species appears to be part of the Californian kangaroo rat radiation, which is derived from a common ancestor with Ord’s kangaroo rat. Best compared 19 morphological measurements from specimens from 34 populations across the species range, and concluded that the species is monotypic. An observational study found distinct habitat differences between the agile and Stephens’s kangaroo rats, with the agile preferring more shrubs and lighter soils.
