It is hard to guess what a Sind bat weights. But we have the answer:
An adult Sind bat (Eptesicus nasutus) on average weights 7 grams (0.02 lbs).
The Sind bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Eptesicus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 8.2 cm (0′ 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 Sind bat (Rhyneptesicus nasutus) is a species of vesper bat. It is found in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Oman, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen. It is the only member of the genus Rhyneptesicus.
