Animal Weight

How much does a Smith’s vole weight?

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

An adult Smith’s vole (Phaulomys smithii) on average weights 35 grams (0.08 lbs).

The Smith’s vole is from the family Muridae (genus: Phaulomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 16.3 cm (0′ 7″).

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.

Smith’s vole (Myodes smithii) is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae. It is also known as Smith’s red-backed vole and is found only in Japan.This vole is named after Richard Gordon Smith, (1858–1918) who, after falling out with his wife, traveled the world hunting for animals and keeping a record of his travels and discoveries in eight large leather-bound diaries. He spent some time in Japan where he collected mammals for the British Museum, including the type specimen of this vole.
