How much does a Somali elephant shrew weight?

It is hard to guess what a Somali elephant shrew weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Somali elephant shrew (Elephantulus revoili) on average weights 32 grams (0.07 lbs).

The Somali elephant shrew is from the family Macroscelididae (genus: Elephantulus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 12.8 cm (0′ 6″).

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.
