How much does a Dwarf scaly-tailed squirrel weight?

It is hard to guess what a Dwarf scaly-tailed squirrel weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Dwarf scaly-tailed squirrel (Anomalurus pusillus) on average weights 250 grams (0.55 lbs).

The Dwarf scaly-tailed squirrel is from the family Anomaluridae (genus: Anomalurus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 19.6 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 dwarf scaly-tailed squirrel (Anomalurus pusillus) is a species of rodent in the family Anomaluridae. It is found in Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and Uganda. The species is nocturnal and arboreal and lives in subtropical or tropical lowland rainforest. Membranes attached to its limbs and tail enable it to glide between trees. This squirrel is currently not considered to be threatened by habitat destruction; “much of the habitat within parts of the known range of this species is relatively intact, and the species is unlikely to be experiencing any significant declines.”
