It is hard to guess what a Eastern long-fingered bat weights. But we have the answer:
An adult Eastern long-fingered bat (Myotis macrodactylus) on average weights 7 grams (0.02 lbs).
The Eastern long-fingered bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Myotis). It is usually born with about 1 grams (0 lbs). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 5.2 cm (0′ 3″). Usually, Eastern long-fingered bats 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 eastern long-fingered bat, or big-footed myotis (Myotis macrodactylus) is a species of vesper bat.
