It is hard to guess what a Handleyomys fuscatus weights. But we have the answer:
An adult Handleyomys fuscatus (Aepeomys fuscatus) on average weights 49 grams (0.11 lbs).
The Handleyomys fuscatus is from the family Muridae (genus: Aepeomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 8 cm (0′ 4″).
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.
Handleyomys fuscatus, also known as the dusky-footed Handley’s mouse or dusky-footed montane mouse, is a species of rodent in the tribe Oryzomyini of family Cricetidae. It was previously placed in the genus Aepeomys, but it is closely similar to Handleyomys intectus (previously Oryzomys intectus), and accordingly both species were placed in the new genus Handleyomys in 2002. It is found only in Colombia.
