Animal Weight

How much does a Stoat weight?

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

An adult Stoat (Mustela erminea) on average weights 284 grams (0.63 lbs).

The Stoat is from the family Mustelidae (genus: Mustela). It is usually born with about 2 grams (0 lbs). They can live for up to 7.08 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 21.6 cm (0′ 9″). Usually, Stoats have 6 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 Stoat is 284 grams (0.63 lbs)

The stoat (Mustela erminea), also known as the ermine, is a mustelid native to Eurasia and North America. Because of its wide circumpolar distribution, it is listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List.The name ermine is used for species in the genus Mustela, especially the stoat, in its pure white winter coat, or the fur thereof.In the late 19th century, it was introduced into New Zealand to control rabbits, where they have had a devastating effect on native bird populations. It was nominated as one of the world’s top 100 “worst invaders”.Ermine luxury fur was used in the 15th century by Catholic monarchs, who sometimes used it as the mozzetta cape. It was also used in capes on images such as the Infant Jesus of Prague.
