Animal Weight

How much does a Gracile tateril weight?

It is hard to guess what a Gracile tateril weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Gracile tateril (Taterillus gracilis) on average weights 49 grams (0.11 lbs).

The Gracile tateril is from the family Muridae (genus: Taterillus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 11.7 cm (0′ 5″). Usually, Gracile taterils have 4 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 gracile tateril or slender gerbil (Taterillus gracilis) is a species of gerbil found in Burkina Faso, Chad, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Togo, and possibly Cameroon. Its natural habitats are dry savanna, arable land, pastureland, and rural gardens. It is a common species, sometimes considered an agricultural pest, and the International Union for Conservation of Nature has rated its conservation status as being of “least concern”.
