Animal Weight

How much does a Earless water rat weight?

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

An adult Earless water rat (Crossomys moncktoni) on average weights 168 grams (0.37 lbs).

The Earless water rat is from the family Muridae (genus: Crossomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 19.3 cm (0′ 8″). Usually, Earless water rats have 1 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.

The earless water rat (Crossomys moncktoni) is a New Guinea rodent, part of the Hydromys group of the subfamily of Old World rats and mice (Murinae). It is the only species of the genus Crossomys. This species is probably most closely related to Baiyankamys. It is still unclear to which species this group is related. It is one of the most aquatically adapted rodents of the world.
