Animal Weight

How much does a Gray-footed chipmunk weight?

It is hard to guess what a Gray-footed chipmunk weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Gray-footed chipmunk (Tamias canipes) on average weights 70 grams (0.15 lbs).

The Gray-footed chipmunk is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Tamias). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 13.1 cm (0′ 6″). On average, Gray-footed chipmunks can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 3.

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 gray-footed chipmunk (Neotamias canipes) is a species of rodent in the family Sciuridae. It is endemic to New Mexico and in the Sierra Diablo and Guadalupe Mountains in the Trans-Pecos region of Texas in the United States. Its natural habitat is temperate forests.Favorite haunts of the gray-footed chipmunk are down logs at the edge of clearings. They occur also in dense stands of mixed timber (oaks, pines, firs) and on brushy hillsides, particularly where crevices in rocks offer retreats. When alarmed, they usually seek seclusion in crevices or burrows; occasionally they take to the trees.Their food consists of a variety of items such as acorns, seeds of Douglas fir, currants, gooseberries, mushrooms, green vegetation, and insects.Little is known of their breeding habits. The young are about half-grown in mid-summer and almost full-grown in September and October, but one female taken in August in the Guadalupe Mountains contained four embryos. One litter a year is normal.
