How much does a Red fruit bat weight?

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

An adult Red fruit bat (Stenoderma rufum) on average weights 21 grams (0.05 lbs).

The Red fruit bat is from the family Phyllostomidae (genus: Stenoderma). It is usually born with about 7 grams (0.02 lbs). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 6.1 cm (0′ 3″). Usually, Red fruit bats have 1 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 red fruit bat or red fig-eating bat (Stenoderma rufum) is a species of bat in the family Phyllostomidae, in the monotypic genus Stenoderma. It is found in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
