Animal Weight

How much does a Djoongari weight?

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

An adult Djoongari (Pseudomys praeconis) on average weights 39 grams (0.09 lbs).

The Djoongari is from the family Muridae (genus: Pseudomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 10.6 cm (0′ 5″). Usually, Djoongaris 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.

Djoongari – Pseudomys fieldi – is a species of rodent in the murid family. The common names have included the Shark Bay and Alice Springs mouse. The range of the species in Australia has become restricted to four islands in the Shark Bay area. It was once found throughout the western two thirds of Australia but it suffered greatly after the arrival of Europeans and feral animals. Its range was reduced to coastal sand dunes on Bernier Island, leaving it severely endangered. In 2003 the Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) released some Shark Bay mice onto Faure Island in the hope of creating another population. Despite the presence of owls the reintroduction was successful and the population quickly grew to a larger size than that of Bernier Island, no longer leaving the species on the brink of extinction.
