How much does a Red-tailed chipmunk weight?

It is hard to guess what a Red-tailed chipmunk weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Red-tailed chipmunk (Tamias ruficaudus) on average weights 60 grams (0.13 lbs).

The Red-tailed chipmunk is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Tamias). They can live for up to 8 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 12.4 cm (0′ 5″). On average, Red-tailed chipmunks can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 4.

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 Red-tailed chipmunk is 60 grams (0.13 lbs)
