It is hard to guess what a Long-tailed house bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Long-tailed house bat (Eptesicus hottentotus) on average weights 30 grams (0.07 lbs).

The Long-tailed house bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Eptesicus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 8.2 cm (0′ 4″).
