Animal Weight

How much does a Southern vole weight?

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

An adult Southern vole (Microtus levis) on average weights 35 grams (0.08 lbs).

The Southern vole is from the family Cricetidae (genus: Microtus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 12.3 cm (0′ 5″).

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 southern vole (Microtus levis) is a species of vole (rodent) in the family Cricetidae. It is found in Albania, Bulgaria, Finland, Greece, Iran, Svalbard (accidentally introduced), North Macedonia, Romania, Russia, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovakia, Turkey, Ukraine and Norway. On Svalbard, they were first discovered in 1960 in the Grumantbyen area, and were thought to be the common vole until a genetic analysis correctly identified them in 1990.
