How much does a Daubenton’s bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Daubenton’s bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Daubenton’s bat (Myotis daubentonii) on average weights 7 grams (0.02 lbs).

The Daubenton’s bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Myotis). It is usually born with about 2 grams (0 lbs). They can live for up to 28 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 4.4 cm (0′ 2″). On average, Daubenton’s bats can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 1.
