Animal Weight

How much does a Highland brush mouse weight?

It is hard to guess what a Highland brush mouse weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Highland brush mouse (Abeomelomys sevia) on average weights 54 grams (0.12 lbs).

The Highland brush mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Abeomelomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 12.7 cm (0′ 5″). Usually, Highland brush mouses have 1 babies per litter.

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 highland brush mouse (Abeomelomys sevia), also known as the Menzies’ mouse, is a species of rodent in the family Muridae. It is endemic to Papua New Guinea, and is found in montane moss forests and in alpine zones over 2,000 m. It is the only species in the genus Abeomelomys, although it has been placed in Pogonomelomys in the past.
