Animal Weight

How much does a Taiwan field mouse weight?

It is hard to guess what a Taiwan field mouse weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Taiwan field mouse (Apodemus semotus) on average weights 25 grams (0.06 lbs).

The Taiwan field mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Apodemus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 9.1 cm (0′ 4″). Usually, Taiwan field mouses have 3 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 Taiwan field mouse is 25 grams (0.06 lbs)

The Taiwan field mouse, also called Formosan wood mouse (Apodemus semotus), is a species of rodent in the family Muridae.It is found only in Taiwan.The Taiwan field mouse is primarily distributed in the montane region between 1,400 and 3,000 m. They inhabit various habitat types, such as natural or planted forests, grasslands, farms, and campsites, and are omnivorous feeding on plants, insects and fungi.Based on morphological measurements, it has been suggested that the Taiwan field mouse is not different from the South China field mouse (Apodemus draco), and should not be considered as a separate species.The Taiwan field mouse is sexually dimorphic, with male generally larger than females (male: 25.6 ± 0.5 g; female: 23.8 ± 0.5 g). Mark-capture-recapture data suggest that their life span may be less than 1 year in the wild.
