How much does a Desert pipistrelle weight?

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

An adult Desert pipistrelle (Hypsugo bodenheimeri) on average weights 2 grams (0 lbs).

The Desert pipistrelle is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Hypsugo). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 13.1 cm (0′ 6″).

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 pipistrelle (Hypsugo ariel) is a species of vesper bat in the genus Hypsugo. It is found in Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Yemen. Some of the Arabian populations were previously regarded as a separate species, Hypsugo bodenheimeri, but the proposed differences between the two do not hold. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry shrubland, rocky areas, and hot deserts.
