Animal Weight

How much does a Nelson’s woodrat weight?

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

An adult Nelson’s woodrat (Neotoma nelsoni) on average weights 198 grams (0.44 lbs).

The Nelson’s woodrat is from the family Muridae (genus: Neotoma). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 21.3 cm (0′ 9″).

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.

Nelson’s woodrat (Neotoma nelsoni) is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae. It is endemic to Mexico, where it is known only from the eastern slopes of the volcanoes Orizaba and Cofre de Perote. Due to the small geographic range, isolation, and low population, the Nelson’s woodrat has a higher risk for extinction. The distribution and population sizes are small. The population exists in geographic isolation, which prevents gene flow
