Animal Weight

How much does a Hairy-tailed bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Hairy-tailed bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Hairy-tailed bat (Lasiurus ebenus) on average weights 14 grams (0.03 lbs).

The Hairy-tailed bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Lasiurus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 1.21 meter (4′ 0″).

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 hairy-tailed bat (Lasiurus ebenus), is a bat species originally known only from its type locality, Ilha do Cardoso State Park in Brazil. A second specimen was collected in 2018, in Carlos Botelho State Park, approximately 100 kilometers away.
