How much does a Northern quoll weight?

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

An adult Northern quoll (Dasyurus hallucatus) on average weights 477 grams (1.05 lbs).

The Northern quoll is from the family Dasyuridae (genus: Dasyurus). They can live for up to 2.83 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 21.4 cm (0′ 9″). On average, Northern quolls can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 6.

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 quoll (Dasyurus hallucatus), also known as the northern native cat, the North Australian native cat, the satanellus or the njanmak (in the indigenous Mayali language, djabo” in Kunwinjku in is a carnivorous marsupial native to Australia. Kunwinjku people of Western Arnhem Land regard djabo as “good tucker”. The hair is singed, the gut is removed (but not the heart or liver) and the cavity packed with bush herbs. It is roasted on hot rocks in a hole.
