How much does a Somali serotine weight?

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

An adult Somali serotine (Eptesicus somalicus) on average weights 4 grams (0.01 lbs).

The Somali serotine is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Eptesicus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 8.4 cm (0′ 4″). Usually, Somali serotines have 2 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 average adult weight of a Somali serotine is 4 grams (0.01 lbs)
