How much does a Douglas squirrel weight?

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

An adult Douglas squirrel (Tamiasciurus douglasii) on average weights 225 grams (0.5 lbs).

The Douglas squirrel is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Tamiasciurus). It is usually born with about 5 grams (0.01 lbs). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 19.1 cm (0′ 8″). On average, Douglas squirrels can have babies 2 times per year with a litter size of 5.

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 Douglas squirrel (Tamiasciurus douglasii) is a pine squirrel found in the Pacific Northwest of North America, including the coastal states of the United States as well as the southwestern coast of British Columbia in Canada. It is sometimes known as the chickaree or pine squirrel, although these names are also used for the American red squirrel. Variant spellings of the common name are Douglas’ squirrel and Douglas’s squirrel. The Native Americans of Kings River called it the “Pillillooeet”, in imitation of its characteristic alarm call.
