How much does a Eurasian least shrew weight?

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

An adult Eurasian least shrew (Sorex minutissimus) on average weights 2 grams (0 lbs).

The Eurasian least shrew is from the family Soricidae (genus: Sorex). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 5.2 cm (0′ 3″). Usually, Eurasian least shrews have 8 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 average adult weight of a Eurasian least shrew is 2 grams (0 lbs)

The Eurasian least shrew (Sorex minutissimus), also called the lesser pygmy shrew, is the second-smallest mammal by mass after the Etruscan shrew.
