How much does a California chipmunk weight?

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

An adult California chipmunk (Tamias obscurus) on average weights 73 grams (0.16 lbs).

The California chipmunk is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Tamias). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 12.8 cm (0′ 6″). Usually, California chipmunks 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.
