How much does a Northern bat weight?

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

An adult Northern bat (Eptesicus nilssoni) on average weights 10 grams (0.02 lbs).

The Northern bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Eptesicus). They can live for up to 15.5 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 8.2 cm (0′ 4″). On average, Northern 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.

The northern bat (Eptesicus nilssonii) is the most abundant species of bat in northern Eurasia. It is found from England to Hokkaidō and down to northern India. It is closely related to the serotine bat (Eptesicus serotinus).
