How much does a Southern forest bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Southern forest bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Southern forest bat (Eptesicus regulus) on average weights 5 grams (0.01 lbs).

The Southern forest bat is from the family Vespertilionidae (genus: Eptesicus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 8.2 cm (0′ 4″). On average, Southern forest bats can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 1.

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.
