How much does a Little forest bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Little forest bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Little forest bat (Eptesicus vulturnus) on average weights 3 grams (0.01 lbs).

The Little forest bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Eptesicus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 3.7 cm (0′ 2″). On average, Little forest bats can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 1.

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 little forest bat (Vespadelus vulturnus) is a species of vesper bat in the family Vespertilionidae.It is found only in south-eastern Australia, including Tasmania.
