Animal Weight

How much does a Schlieffen’s bat weight?

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

An adult Schlieffen’s bat (Nycticeinops schlieffeni) on average weights 5 grams (0.01 lbs).

The Schlieffen’s bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Nycticeinops). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 11.5 cm (0′ 5″). On average, Schlieffen’s bats can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 2.

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 Schlieffen's bat is 5 grams (0.01 lbs)

Schlieffen’s bat or Schlieffen’s twilight bat (Nycticeinops schlieffeni) is a species of vesper bat found in Africa. It has been placed in numerous genera since its first description in 1859, but morphological and genetic studies have confirmed it as the only species in the genus Nycticeinops. It is named for the collector of the original specimen, Wilhelm von Schlieffen-Schlieffiennburg.
