How much does a Kowari weight?

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

An adult Kowari (Dasyuroides byrnei) on average weights 109 grams (0.24 lbs).

The Kowari is from the family Dasyuridae (genus: Dasyuroides). They can live for up to 7 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 15.8 cm (0′ 7″). On average, Kowaris can have babies 2 times per year with a litter size of 5.

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 Kowari is 109 grams (0.24 lbs)
