How much does a Bechstein’s bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Bechstein’s bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Bechstein’s bat (Myotis bechsteinii) on average weights 9 grams (0.02 lbs).

The Bechstein’s bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Myotis). They can live for up to 21 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 10.9 cm (0′ 5″). On average, Bechstein’s bats can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 1.
