How much does a Cliff chipmunk weight?

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

An adult Cliff chipmunk (Tamias dorsalis) on average weights 63 grams (0.14 lbs).

The Cliff chipmunk is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Tamias). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 12.5 cm (0′ 5″). On average, Cliff chipmunks can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 5.

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 cliff chipmunk (Neotamias dorsalis) is a small, bushy-tailed squirrel that typically lives along cliff walls or boulder fields bordering Pinyon-juniper woodlands in the Western United States and Mexico (commonly spotted in northern Arizona to Colorado). Cliff chipmunks are very agile, and can often be seen scaling steep cliff walls. Cliff chipmunks do not amass body fat as the more common ground squirrel does. They create a “stash” of food which they frequent during the cold winter months. The chipmunks size varies from 8-10 in. and weigh an average of 2.5 oz. These small creatures live to a staggering 12 1/2 years. The chipmunks are brown on their underside and gray on the back with white stripes on their face.
