How much does a Fawn-footed mosaic-tailed rat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Fawn-footed mosaic-tailed rat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Fawn-footed mosaic-tailed rat (Melomys cervinipes) on average weights 71 grams (0.16 lbs).

The Fawn-footed mosaic-tailed rat is from the family Muridae (genus: Melomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 13.3 cm (0′ 6″). On average, Fawn-footed mosaic-tailed rats can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 2.

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 fawn-footed mosaic-tailed rat, or fawn-footed melomys (Melomys cervinipes) is a species of rodent in the family Muridae. It is found only in Australia.This species has long been commonly known by the descriptive English common name fawn-footed melomys, but during the 1990s, a push began for such names to be replaced with indigenous Australian names. Accordingly, in 1995, the Australian Nature Conservation Agency published recommendations for the common names of rodents. They compiled two indigenous Australian names for this species: corrill, recorded from Stradbroke Island; and cunduoo, recorded from the vicinity of the Richmond River. They recommended the adoption of the former of these names, but with the orthography korril. However, this recommendation was not prescriptive, and to what extent it will be adopted remains to be seen.
