How much does a Northern grass mouse weight?

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

An adult Northern grass mouse (Necromys urichi) on average weights 44 grams (0.1 lbs).

The Northern grass mouse is from the family Cricetidae (genus: Necromys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 10.8 cm (0′ 5″). On average, Northern grass mouses can have babies 3 times per year with a litter size of 5.

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 grass mouse, or northern akodont, (Necromys urichi) is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae. It is found in Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and Trinidad and Tobago.
