It is hard to guess what a Cotton mouse weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Cotton mouse (Peromyscus gossypinus) on average weights 27 grams (0.06 lbs).

The Cotton mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Peromyscus). It is usually born with about 2 grams (0 lbs). They can live for up to 1.25 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 9.8 cm (0′ 4″). On average, Cotton mouses can have babies 4 times per year with a litter size of 3.
