Animal Weight

How much does a Crowned shrew weight?

It is hard to guess what a Crowned shrew weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Crowned shrew (Sorex coronatus) on average weights 9 grams (0.02 lbs).

The Crowned shrew is from the family Soricidae (genus: Sorex). They can live for up to 1.08 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 7.2 cm (0′ 3″). On average, Crowned shrews can have babies 2 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 average adult weight of a Crowned shrew is 9 grams (0.02 lbs)

The crowned shrew or Millet’s shrew (Sorex coronatus) is a species of mammal in the family Soricidae. It is found in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, and the British island of Jersey. It is almost indistinguishable from the common shrew, its habitatal preferences and habits are identical. However it has a different karyotype, is slightly smaller, and has small morphological differences, such as a longer rostrum (upper tooth-row and mandible) relative to length of skull.
