How much does a Handleyomys intectus weight?

It is hard to guess what a Handleyomys intectus weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Handleyomys intectus (Oryzomys intectus) on average weights 60 grams (0.13 lbs).

The Handleyomys intectus is from the family Muridae (genus: Oryzomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 11.2 cm (0′ 5″).

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 intectus, also known as the white-footed Handley’s mouse or Colombian rice rat, is a species of rodent in the genus Handleyomys of family Cricetidae. It occurs only in Colombia. It was previously included in Oryzomys (as Oryzomys intectus), but is closely similar to Handleyomys fuscatus (previously Aepeomys fuscatus), and accordingly both species were placed in the new genus Handleyomys in 2002.
