How much does a Desert mouse weight?

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

An adult Desert mouse (Pseudomys desertor) on average weights 37 grams (0.08 lbs).

The Desert mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Pseudomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 8.8 cm (0′ 4″). Usually, Desert 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.

The desert mouse (Pseudomys desertor), also known as the brown desert mouse, is a species of rodent in the family Muridae. It is endemic to Australia. The first desert mouse specimen was collected by Australian zoologist Gerard Krefft on the Blandowski Expedition in 1856-57, between Gol Gol Creek and the Darling River.
