How much does a Angolan rousette weight?

It is hard to guess what a Angolan rousette weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Angolan rousette (Lissonycteris angolensis) on average weights 68 grams (0.15 lbs).

The Angolan rousette is from the family Pteropodidae (genus: Lissonycteris). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 10.5 cm (0′ 5″). Normally, Angolan rousettes can have babies 2 times a year.

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.
