How much does a Taiga shrew weight?

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

An adult Taiga shrew (Sorex isodon) on average weights 12 grams (0.03 lbs).

The Taiga shrew is from the family Soricidae (genus: Sorex). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 7.5 cm (0′ 3″). Usually, Taiga shrews have 7 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 Taiga shrew is 12 grams (0.03 lbs)

The taiga shrew (Sorex isodon), also known as the even-toothed shrew can achieve a body length of about 67 millimeters, with a tail of about 43 millimeters. This shrew is very similar to the long-clawed shrew. This species inhabits forested mountain valleys, and is found across northern Eurasia. It ranges from the Baltic Sea area through the Lake Baikal region of Siberia into the Russian Far East and along the Baekdudaegan mountains of the Korean Peninsula.
