Animal Weight

How much does a Natterer’s bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Natterer’s bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Natterer’s bat (Myotis nattereri) on average weights 7 grams (0.02 lbs).

The Natterer’s bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Myotis). They can live for up to 15 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 5.1 meter (16′ 9″). On average, Natterer’s bats can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 1.

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.

Natterer’s bat (Myotis nattereri) is a European vespertilionid bat with pale wings. It has brown fur tending to greyish-white on its underside. It is found across most of the continent of Europe, parts of the Near East and North Africa. It feeds on insects and other invertebrates which it catches on the wing or pursues on the ground.In summer it roosts in deciduous and coniferous trees, buildings or bat boxes close to its feeding habitats. In winter it hibernates in caves, tunnels, mines or cellars, usually hiding in crevices. This bat was first described in 1817 by Heinrich Kuhl, who named it in honour of the Austrian naturalist Johann Natterer.
