How much does a Long-tailed planigale weight?

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

An adult Long-tailed planigale (Planigale ingrami) on average weights 6 grams (0.01 lbs).

The Long-tailed planigale is from the family Dasyuridae (genus: Planigale). They can live for up to 1.25 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 30 cm (1′ 0″). On average, Long-tailed planigales can have babies 2 times per year with a litter size of 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 planigale (Planigale ingrami), also known as Ingram’s planigale or the northern planigale, is the smallest of all marsupials, and one of the smallest of all mammals. It is rarely seen but is a quite common inhabitant of the blacksoil plains, clay-soiled woodlands, and seasonally flooded grasslands of Australia’s Top End.
