Animal Weight

How much does a Green acouchi weight?

It is hard to guess what a Green acouchi weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Green acouchi (Myoprocta pratti) on average weights 966 grams (2.13 lbs).

The Green acouchi is from the family Dasyproctidae (genus: Myoprocta). It is usually born with about 79 grams (0.17 lbs). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 10.9 cm (0′ 5″). Usually, Green acouchis have 1 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 green acouchi (Myoprocta pratti) is a species of rodent in the acouchi genus, part of the family Dasyproctidae, from South America. Its distribution is in western Amazonia, west of the Rios Negro and Madeira, in northwestern Brazil, northeastern Peru, eastern Ecuador, southeastern Colombia, and southern Venezuela. There is substantial variation within this range, and the Green Acouchi, as currently recognized, may contain more than one species. Because the application of the scientific name acouchy, currently in use for the Red Acouchi, has historically been disputed, the name Myoprocta acouchy has sometimes been used for this species instead of Myoprocta pratti. The species is named for Antwerp Edgar Pratt who was a British naturalist.
