Animal Weight

How much does a Northern palm squirrel weight?

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

An adult Northern palm squirrel (Funambulus pennantii) on average weights 102 grams (0.22 lbs).

The Northern palm squirrel is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Funambulus). It is usually born with about 6 grams (0.01 lbs). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 45.7 cm (1′ 6″). On average, Northern palm squirrels can have babies 2 times per year with a litter size of 2.

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.
