How much does a Nilgiri striped squirrel weight?

It is hard to guess what a Nilgiri striped squirrel weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Nilgiri striped squirrel (Funambulus sublineatus) on average weights 70 grams (0.15 lbs).

The Nilgiri striped squirrel is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Funambulus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 45.7 cm (1′ 6″). Usually, Nilgiri striped squirrels have 2 babies per litter.

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 Nilgiri striped squirrel is 70 grams (0.15 lbs)

The Nilgiri striped squirrel (Funambulus sublineatus) is a threatened species of rodent, a small squirrel (Sciuridae) from rainforests in the southern Western Ghats, including the Nilgiris, in Peninsular India. It formerly included Funambulus obscurus from Sri Lanka as a subspecies, at which point the English name of the “combined species” also was dusky striped squirrel (a name now restricted to the Sri Lankan species).
