How much does a Marbled polecat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Marbled polecat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Marbled polecat (Vormela peregusna) on average weights 594 grams (1.31 lbs).

The Marbled polecat is from the family Mustelidae (genus: Vormela). They can live for up to 8.92 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 31.9 cm (1′ 1″). Usually, Marbled polecats have 5 babies per litter.

The marbled polecat (Vormela peregusna) is a small mammal belonging to the monotypic genus Vormela within the mustelid subfamily Ictonychinae. Vormela is from the German word Würmlein,[1] which means “little worm”. The specific name peregusna comes from perehuznya (перегузня), which is Ukrainian for “polecat”.[2] Marbled polecats are generally found in the drier areas and grasslands of southeastern Europe to western China. Like other members of Ictonychinae, it can emit a strong-smelling secretion from anal sacs under the tail when threatened.
