Animal Weight

How much does a Pygmy rabbit weight?

It is hard to guess what a Pygmy rabbit weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Pygmy rabbit (Brachylagus idahoensis) on average weights 437 grams (0.96 lbs).

The Pygmy rabbit is from the family Leporidae (genus: Brachylagus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 26.5 cm (0′ 11″). On average, Pygmy rabbits can have babies 1 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 average adult weight of a Pygmy rabbit is 437 grams (0.96 lbs)

The pygmy rabbit (Brachylagus idahoensis) is a North American rabbit, and is one of only two rabbit species in America to dig its own burrow. The pygmy rabbit differs significantly from species within either the Lepus (hare) or Sylvilagus (cottontail) genera and is generally considered to be within the monotypic genus Brachylagus. One isolated population, the Columbia Basin pygmy rabbit, is listed as an endangered species by the U.S. Federal government, though the International Union for Conservation of Nature lists the species as lower risk.The pygmy rabbit is the world’s smallest leporid, which means adult weights from 375 to about 500 grams (0.827 to about 1.102 lb), and a body length from 23.5 to 29.5 centimeters (9.3 to 11.6 in); females are slightly larger than males. The pygmy rabbit is distinguishable from other leporids by its small size, short ears, gray color, small hind legs, and lack of whit fuzzy fur
