It is hard to guess what a Central pebble-mound mouse weights. But we have the answer:
An adult Central pebble-mound mouse (Pseudomys johnsoni) on average weights 12 grams (0.03 lbs).
The Central pebble-mound mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Pseudomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 12.8 cm (0′ 6″).
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 central pebble-mound mouse (Pseudomys johnsoni) is a species of rodent in the family Muridae, native to Australia. The Kimberley mouse (Pseudomys laborifex) was, until recently, considered distinct from P. johnsoni, but they are now known to be conspecific. It is one of the pebble-mound mice.
