Animal Weight

How much does a Samar squirrel weight?

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

An adult Samar squirrel (Sundasciurus samarensis) on average weights 225 grams (0.5 lbs).

The Samar squirrel is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Sundasciurus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 21 cm (0′ 9″).

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 Samar squirrel (Sundasciurus samarensis) is a species of rodent in the family Sciuridae. It is endemic to the Philippines, where it has been recorded from Samar and Leyte Islands. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. It is threatened by habitat loss, due to expanding human activities, hunting, and the lack of basic knowledge about the species. They thrive in primary and secondary lowland and montane forest, including the lower edges of mossy forest. It is also found in some agricultural areas.
