How much does a Indian hedgehog weight?

It is hard to guess what a Indian hedgehog weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Indian hedgehog (Paraechinus micropus) on average weights 171 grams (0.38 lbs).

The Indian hedgehog is from the family Erinaceidae (genus: Paraechinus). It is usually born with about 8 grams (0.02 lbs). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 18 cm (0′ 8″). On average, Indian hedgehogs can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 4.
