How much does a Black flying squirrel weight?

It is hard to guess what a Black flying squirrel weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Black flying squirrel (Aeromys tephromelas) on average weights 1.19 kg (2.62 lbs).

The Black flying squirrel is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Aeromys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 38 cm (1′ 3″). Usually, Black flying squirrels have 1 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 black flying squirrel or large black flying squirrel (Aeromys tephromelas) is a species of rodent in the family Sciuridae.It is found in Brunei, Indonesia, and Malaysia; its habitat is primary and secondary forests and gardens where it uses tree hollows. It feeds on fruits, nuts and other vegetable matter. It is likely not threatened and is adaptable to habitat loss. Black flying squirrels tend to have smaller populations than other squirrels because female black flying squirrels breed infrequently and have a small litter size of just one young.
