Animal Weight

How much does a Amazon weasel weight?

It is hard to guess what a Amazon weasel weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Amazon weasel (Mustela africana) on average weights 268 grams (0.59 lbs).

The Amazon weasel is from the family Mustelidae (genus: Mustela). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 15.5 cm (0′ 7″).

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 Amazon weasel (Mustela africana), also known as the tropical weasel, is a species of weasel native to South America. It was first identified from a museum specimen mislabelled as coming from Africa, hence the scientific name.
