How much does a Hodgson’s bat weight?

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

An adult Hodgson’s bat (Myotis formosus) on average weights 7 grams (0.02 lbs).

The Hodgson’s bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Myotis). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 4.4 cm (0′ 2″).

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.

Favouring mountain forests, it is found throughout Central, Southeast, and East Asia, from Afghanistan to the Japanese island of Tsushima. It is about 5 centimetres (2.0 in) long and is distinguished from most other species of bat in this range by its yellowish colouration.
