Animal Weight

How much does a Kemp’s grass mouse weight?

It is hard to guess what a Kemp’s grass mouse weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Kemp’s grass mouse (Akodon kempi) on average weights 26 grams (0.06 lbs).

The Kemp’s grass mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Akodon). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 3.7 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.

Kemp’s grass mouse (Deltamys kempi) is a species of South American rodent in the family Cricetidae. It is the only species in the genus Deltamys. It was formerly considered a member of the genus Akodon, but is now considered sufficiently distinct to warrant its own genus. It is named for Robin Kemp, who collected specimens of mice from the area for the British Museum.
