Animal Weight

How much does a Delany’s mouse weight?

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

An adult Delany’s mouse (Delanymys brooksi) on average weights 4 grams (0.01 lbs).

The Delany’s mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Delanymys). They can live for up to 2 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 40 cm (1′ 4″). Usually, Delany’s mouses have 3 babies per litter.

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.

Delany’s mouse or Delany’s swamp mouse (Delanymys brooksi) is a species of rodent in the family Nesomyidae. It is the only species in the genus Delanymys and the only extant member of subfamily Delanymyinae, which also contains the fossil genus Stenodontomys. It was previously placed in subfamily Petromyscinae, but it is apparently not closely related to Petromyscus. It is found in Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical high-altitude shrubland and swamps. It is threatened by habitat loss.
