How much does a Smoky flying squirrel weight?

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

An adult Smoky flying squirrel (Pteromyscus pulverulentus) on average weights 251 grams (0.55 lbs).

The Smoky flying squirrel is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Pteromyscus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 22.9 cm (0′ 10″). Usually, Smoky flying squirrels have 1 babies per litter.

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 smoky flying squirrel (Pteromyscus pulverulentus) is a species of rodents in the family Sciuridae. It is monotypic within the genus Pteromyscus. It is found in Brunei, Indonesia, Peninsular Malaysia, and southern Thailand, but its range may be more extensive than currently mapped. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. It is listed as endangered because of estimated population loss of 50% in past and future, judging from extensive and rapid habitat loss.According to records of sightings from Borneo and Malaysia, the species is only rarely sighted even in primary/pristine forest, although it lives mainly in these conditions. A threat to the population is habitat loss due to lower elevational range, restricting or preventing long-distance gliding needed to maintain a large range. It eats mostly fruits, nuts, and fungi found on nocturnal forays through the trees.
