Animal Weight

How much does a Blanford’s bat weight?

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

An adult Blanford’s bat (Hesperoptenus blanfordi) on average weights 6 grams (0.01 lbs).

The Blanford’s bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Hesperoptenus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 47.8 cm (1′ 7″).

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.

Blanford’s bat (Hesperoptenus blanfordi), also known as the least false-serotine bat, is a species of vesper bat. It can be found in Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand, where it lives in various different forested habitats. The International Union for Conservation of Nature has assessed its conservation status as being of “least concern”.
