It is hard to guess what a Greater mouse-deer weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Greater mouse-deer (Tragulus napu) on average weights 5.25 kg (11.58 lbs).

The Greater mouse-deer is from the family Tragulidae (genus: Tragulus). It is usually born with about 373 grams (0.82 lbs). They can live for up to 16.25 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 56.2 cm (1′ 11″). On average, Greater mouse-deers can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 1.
