Animal Weight

How much does a Cape gerbil weight?

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

An adult Cape gerbil (Tatera afra) on average weights 92 grams (0.2 lbs).

The Cape gerbil is from the family Muridae (genus: Tatera). It is usually born with about 4 grams (0.01 lbs). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 11.7 cm (0′ 5″). On average, Cape gerbils can have babies 6 times per year with a litter size of 3.

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 Cape gerbil, Gerbilliscus afra, is a species of gerbil found only in South Africa. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry shrubland and temperate desert.
