How much does a Himalayan striped squirrel weight?

It is hard to guess what a Himalayan striped squirrel weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Himalayan striped squirrel (Tamiops macclellandi) on average weights 45 grams (0.1 lbs).

The Himalayan striped squirrel is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Tamiops). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 10.4 cm (0′ 5″). Usually, Himalayan striped squirrels have 2 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 Himalayan striped squirrel (Tamiops mcclellandii), also known as western striped squirrel, or Burmese striped squirrel, is a species of rodent in the family Sciuridae. It lives in a variety of forest from tropical to subtropical in Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, and Vietnam. This species is diurnal, arboreal and feeds on fruits, vegetable matter, and insects. It often seen in small groups and uses tree holes for shelter.The rapid uplift of the Himalayan Mountains is believed to have caused the diversification of the three main Tamiops Lineages. Multiple divergences from 5.8 to 1.7 mya likely led to the formation of modern Tamiops species.
