Animal Weight

How much does a Big-eared woodrat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Big-eared woodrat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Big-eared woodrat (Neotoma macrotis) on average weights 225 grams (0.5 lbs).

The Big-eared woodrat is from the family Cricetidae (genus: Neotoma). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 3.7 cm (0′ 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 big-eared woodrat (Neotoma macrotis) is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae. Closely related to, and formerly included in the species Neotoma fuscipes, it occurs from northern Baja California northward to the California Coast Ranges west and south of the Salinas Valley and in the Sierra Nevada to the South Fork American River. A study of the species found the “Bear Canyon” virus, a mammarenavirus, traditionally associated with the California mouse, is actually passed by the big-eared woodrat before host-jumping to the California mouse.
