Animal Weight

How much does a Eurasian harvest mouse weight?

It is hard to guess what a Eurasian harvest mouse weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Eurasian harvest mouse (Micromys minutus) on average weights 7 grams (0.02 lbs).

The Eurasian harvest mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Micromys). They can live for up to 5 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 5.9 cm (0′ 3″). On average, Eurasian harvest mouses 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 average adult weight of a Eurasian harvest mouse is 7 grams (0.02 lbs)

The harvest mouse (Micromys minutus) is a small rodent native to Europe and Asia. It is typically found in fields of cereal crops, such as wheat and oats, in reed beds and in other tall ground vegetation, such as long grass and hedgerows. It has reddish-brown fur with white underparts and a naked, highly prehensile tail, which it uses for climbing. It is the smallest European rodent; an adult may weigh as little as 4 grams (0.14 oz). It eats chiefly seeds and insects, but also nectar and fruit. Breeding nests are spherical constructions carefully woven from grass and attached to stems well above the ground.
