Animal Weight

How much does a Common planigale weight?

It is hard to guess what a Common planigale weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Common planigale (Planigale maculata) on average weights 12 grams (0.03 lbs).

The Common planigale is from the family Dasyuridae (genus: Planigale). They can live for up to 4 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 30 cm (1′ 0″). On average, Common planigales can have babies 2 times per year with a litter size of 7.

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 Common planigale is 12 grams (0.03 lbs)

The common planigale (Planigale maculata), also known as the pygmy planigale or the coastal planigale, is one of many small marsupial carnivores known as “marsupial mice” found in Australia. There they fill a similar niche to the insectivores of other parts of the world.
