Animal Weight

How much does a Mountain beaver weight?

It is hard to guess what a Mountain beaver weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Mountain beaver (Aplodontia rufa) on average weights 806 grams (1.78 lbs).

The Mountain beaver is from the family Aplodontidae (genus: Aplodontia). It is usually born with about 23 grams (0.05 lbs). They can live for up to 10 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 30.7 cm (1′ 1″). On average, Mountain beavers can have babies 1 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 average adult weight of a Mountain beaver is 806 grams (1.78 lbs)

The mountain beaver (Aplodontia rufa) is a North American rodent. It is the only living member of its genus, Aplodontia, and family, Aplodontiidae. It should not be confused with true North American and Eurasian beavers, to which it is not closely related.
