How much does a Plantain squirrel weight?

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

An adult Plantain squirrel (Callosciurus notatus) on average weights 210 grams (0.46 lbs).

The Plantain squirrel is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Callosciurus). They can live for up to 9.58 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 20.3 cm (0′ 8″). Usually, Plantain squirrels have 2 babies per litter.

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 plantain squirrel, oriental squirrel or tricoloured squirrel (Callosciurus notatus) is a species of rodents in the family Sciuridae found in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand in a wide range of habitats: forests, mangroves, parks, gardens, and agricultural areas. Fruit farmers consider them to be pests.Its body is about 20–30 cm (8–12 in) long with a similar-sized tail. It is greyish/brown with a chestnut belly and a black and white stripe on the side. The genus name Callosciurus means beautiful squirrels.Its diet consists mostly of leaves and fruits, but it also eats insects and bird eggs. It is known to break open twigs that contain ant larvae to eat them. It can eat fruits much bigger than itself, such as mangoes, jackfruit, or coconuts. It is very quick and agile in trees, able to jump a few metres between trees, and rarely wanders on the ground.Kloss’s squirrel (Callosciurus albescens) is sometimes considered a subspecies.
