Animal Weight

How much does a Hildegarde’s shrew weight?

It is hard to guess what a Hildegarde’s shrew weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Hildegarde’s shrew (Crocidura hildegardeae) on average weights 10 grams (0.02 lbs).

The Hildegarde’s shrew is from the family Soricidae (genus: Crocidura). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 6 cm (0′ 3″).

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.

Hildegarde’s shrew (Crocidura hildegardeae) is a species of mammal in the family Soricidae. It is found in Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, and Tanzania. Considered by some authorities to be a subspecies of Crocidura gracilipes, it is now recognised as a separate species, with a chromosome number of 2n = 52. This is one of three species of small mammal named by the British zoologist Oldfield Thomas in honour of anthropologist Hildegarde Beatrice Hinde.
