It is hard to guess what a Madame Berthe’s mouse lemur weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Madame Berthe’s mouse lemur (Microcebus berthae) on average weights 33 grams (0.07 lbs).

The Madame Berthe’s mouse lemur is from the family Cheirogaleidae (genus: Microcebus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 16.8 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.

Madame Berthe’s mouse lemur (Microcebus berthae) or Berthe’s mouse lemur is the smallest of the mouse lemurs and the smallest primate in the world; the average body length is 9.2 cm (3.6 in) and seasonal weight is around 30 g (1.1 oz). Microcebus berthae is one of many species of Malagasy lemurs that came about through extensive speciation, caused by unknown environmental mechanisms and conditions.This primate is found chiefly in the Kirindy Forest in western Madagascar. After its discovery in 1992 in the dry deciduous forest of western Madagascar, it was initially thought to represent a rediscovery of M. myoxinus, but comparative morphometric and genetic studies revealed its status as a new species, M. berthae.This lemur is named after the conservationist and primatologist Berthe Rakotosamimanana of Madagascar, who was the Secretary General of the Groupe d’Etudes et de Recherche des Primates (GERP) from its founding until her death in 2005.
