Animal Weight

How much does a Beech marten weight?

It is hard to guess what a Beech marten weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Beech marten (Martes foina) on average weights 1.67 kg (3.69 lbs).

The Beech marten is from the family Mustelidae (genus: Martes). It is usually born with about 30 grams (0.07 lbs). They can live for up to 18.08 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 46 cm (1′ 7″). Usually, Beech martens have 3 babies per litter.

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 beech marten (Martes foina), also known as the stone marten, house marten or white breasted marten, is a species of marten native to much of Europe and Central Asia, though it has established a feral population in North America. It is listed as Least Concern by the IUCN on account of its wide distribution, its large population, and its presence in a number of protected areas. It is superficially similar to the pine marten, but differs from it by its smaller size and habitat preferences. While the pine marten is a forest specialist, the beech marten is a more generalist and adaptable species, occurring in a number of open and forest habitats.
