Animal Weight

How much does a Dickey’s deer mouse weight?

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

An adult Dickey’s deer mouse (Peromyscus dickeyi) on average weights 28 grams (0.06 lbs).

The Dickey’s deer mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Peromyscus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 10 cm (0′ 4″).

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.

Dickey’s deer mouse (Peromyscus dickeyi) is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae. It is endemic to Mexico, being found only on a small island in the Gulf of California. The species is named for Donald Dickey, who sponsored the expedition that first discovered the animal.
