How much does a Long-tailed mountain rat weight?

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

An adult Long-tailed mountain rat (Niviventer rapit) on average weights 79 grams (0.17 lbs).

The Long-tailed mountain rat is from the family Muridae (genus: Niviventer). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 15.9 cm (0′ 7″).

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 long-tailed mountain rat (Niviventer rapit) is a species of rodent in the family Muridae. It is endemic to Borneo and found in Indonesia and Malaysia. Recorded at elevations of 940–3,360 m (3,080–11,020 ft) above sea level, it is a poorly known species but presumably common, assumed to inhabit forests and scrubland.
