How much does a Guadeloupe big-eyed bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Guadeloupe big-eyed bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Guadeloupe big-eyed bat (Chiroderma improvisum) on average weights 35 grams (0.08 lbs).

The Guadeloupe big-eyed bat is from the family Phyllostomidae (genus: Chiroderma). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 30.5 cm (1′ 1″).

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 Guadeloupe big-eyed bat (Chiroderma improvisum) is a species of bat in the family Phyllostomidae. It is found in Guadeloupe and Montserrat. It is threatened by habitat loss mostly because of Hurricane Hugo, which destroyed 90% of the population of this bat in 1989. The species may be locally extinct in some areas of Guadeloupe.
