Animal Weight

How much does a Canyon bat weight?

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

An adult Canyon bat (Pipistrellus hesperus) on average weights 3 grams (0.01 lbs).

The Canyon bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Pipistrellus). They can live for up to 6 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 12.18 meter (40′ 0″). On average, Canyon bats can have babies 1 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 average adult weight of a Canyon bat is 3 grams (0.01 lbs)

The canyon bat (Parastrellus hesperus), also known as the western pipistrelle, is a species of vesper bat. It is found in Mexico and in the western United States. The species has historically been placed in the genus Pipistrellus, but molecular evidence does not show any close relationship with that genus, and accordingly it was classified into its own genus, Parastrellus, in 2006.
