Animal Weight

How much does a Feathertail glider weight?

It is hard to guess what a Feathertail glider weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Feathertail glider (Acrobates pygmaeus) on average weights 13 grams (0.03 lbs).

The Feathertail glider is from the family Acrobatidae (genus: Acrobates). They can live for up to 7.17 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 8 cm (0′ 4″). On average, Feathertail gliders can have babies 2 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 average adult weight of a Feathertail glider is 13 grams (0.03 lbs)

The feathertail glider (Acrobates pygmaeus), also known as the pygmy gliding possum, pygmy glider, pygmy phalanger, flying phalanger and flying mouse, is a species of marsupial native to eastern Australia. It is the world’s smallest gliding mammal and is named for its long feather-shaped tail.A second species, the Broad-toed Feathertail Glider (Acrobates frontalis) is recognised by some authors based on unpublished genetic studies and cryptic morphological differences in toe and tail characteristics.
