How much does a Marsh rabbit weight?

It is hard to guess what a Marsh rabbit weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Marsh rabbit (Sylvilagus palustris) on average weights 1.36 kg (2.99 lbs).

The Marsh rabbit is from the family Leporidae (genus: Sylvilagus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 40.2 cm (1′ 4″). On average, Marsh rabbits can have babies 6 times per year with a litter size of 2.

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 marsh rabbit (Sylvilagus palustris) is a small cottontail rabbit found in marshes and swamps of coastal regions of the Eastern and Southern United States. It is a strong swimmer and found only near regions of water. It is similar in appearance to the eastern cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus) but is characterized by smaller ears, legs, and tail.
