Animal Weight

How much does a Horse-tailed squirrel weight?

It is hard to guess what a Horse-tailed squirrel weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Horse-tailed squirrel (Sundasciurus hippurus) on average weights 358 grams (0.79 lbs).

The Horse-tailed squirrel is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Sundasciurus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 22.8 cm (0′ 9″).

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 average adult weight of a Horse-tailed squirrel is 358 grams (0.79 lbs)

The horse-tailed squirrel (Sundasciurus hippurus) is a species of rodent in the family Sciuridae. It is found throughout the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, as well as the southern half of the Malay Peninsula, which includes the entire nations of Brunei and Malaysia, as well as some areas of Indonesia and Thailand. There was a mention of this squirrel being found in Vietnam in 1831 (I. Geoffroy, 1831), but subsequent descriptions of this squirrel’s range have not included that nation.
