How much does a Japanese mole weight?

It is hard to guess what a Japanese mole weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Japanese mole (Mogera wogura) on average weights 82 grams (0.18 lbs).

The Japanese mole is from the family Talpidae (genus: Mogera). They can live for up to 3.5 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 14.3 cm (0′ 6″). On average, Japanese moles can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 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.
