How much does a Guyenne spiny rat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Guyenne spiny rat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Guyenne spiny rat (Proechimys warreni) on average weights 285 grams (0.63 lbs).

The Guyenne spiny rat is from the family Echimyidae (genus: Proechimys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 22.9 cm (0′ 10″).

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.
