Animal Weight

How much does a Dusky rat weight?

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

An adult Dusky rat (Rattus colletti) on average weights 146 grams (0.32 lbs).

The Dusky rat is from the family Muridae (genus: Rattus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 19 cm (0′ 8″).

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 dusky rat (Rattus colletti) is a species of rodent in the family Muridae.It is found only in the monsoonal subcoastal plains of the Northern Territory, Australia.Kunwinjku of western Arnhem Land call this animal Mulbu, a name applied to other rodent species. It is eaten (Reverend Peterson Nganjmirra, personal comment in Goodfellow, Fauna of Kakadu and the Top End, 1993).
