How much does a Hainan gymnure weight?

It is hard to guess what a Hainan gymnure weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Hainan gymnure (Hylomys hainanensis) on average weights 58 grams (0.13 lbs).

The Hainan gymnure is from the family Erinaceidae (genus: Hylomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 13.5 cm (0′ 6″).

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 Hainan gymnure (Neohylomys hainanensis) or Hainan moonrat is a species of mammal in the family Erinaceidae. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. It was thought to be endemic to the island of Hainan, China where it is threatened due to habitat loss, but in 2018 was found to also occur in, and be rather common, within Northern Vietnam.It is in the monotypic genus Neohylomys.
