Animal Weight

How much does a Boodie weight?

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

An adult Boodie (Bettongia lesueur) on average weights 1.45 kg (3.19 lbs).

The Boodie is from the family Potoroidae (genus: Bettongia). They can live for up to 10 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 33.1 cm (1′ 2″). On average, Boodies can have babies 3 times per year with a litter size of 1.

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 boodie (Bettongia lesueur), also known as the burrowing bettong, or Lesueur’s rat-kangaroo, is a small marsupial. Its population is an example of the effects of introduced animals on Australian fauna and ecosystems. Once the most common macropodiform mammal on the whole continent, the boodie now only lives on off-lying islands and in a newly introduced population on the mainland at Shark Bay. This animal, first collected during an 1817 French expedition of the west coast, was named after Charles Lesueur, an artist and naturalist who accompanied a previous French expedition.
