It is hard to guess what a Patagonian chinchilla mouse weights. But we have the answer:
An adult Patagonian chinchilla mouse (Euneomys chinchilloides) on average weights 75 grams (0.17 lbs).
The Patagonian chinchilla mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Euneomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 13.92 meter (45′ 9″).
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 Patagonian chinchilla mouse (Euneomys chinchilloides) is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae. It was first described by George Robert Waterhouse in 1839. It is found in Tierra del Fuego and neighboring areas of southernmost Argentina and Chile.
