How much does a Fringe-tailed gerbil weight?

It is hard to guess what a Fringe-tailed gerbil weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Fringe-tailed gerbil (Gerbilliscus robustus) on average weights 95 grams (0.21 lbs).

The Fringe-tailed gerbil is from the family Muridae (genus: Gerbilliscus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 14.4 cm (0′ 6″). Usually, Fringe-tailed gerbils have 5 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 fringe-tailed gerbil (Gerbilliscus robustus) is a species of gerbil found in Central African Republic, Chad, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Niger, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, possibly Cameroon, and possibly Nigeria. Its natural habitats are dry savanna, moist savanna, subtropical or tropical dry lowland grassland, arable land and urban areas.
