How much does a Railer bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Railer bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Railer bat (Mops thersites) on average weights 22 grams (0.05 lbs).

The Railer bat is from the family Molossidae (genus: Mops). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 1.45 meter (4′ 10″). On average, Railer bats can have babies 2 times per year with a litter size of 1.
