Animal Weight

How much does a Tapeti weight?

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

An adult Tapeti (Sylvilagus brasiliensis) on average weights 988 grams (2.18 lbs).

The Tapeti is from the family Leporidae (genus: Sylvilagus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 36.3 cm (1′ 3″). On average, Tapetis can have babies 4 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.

The average adult weight of a Tapeti is 988 grams (2.18 lbs)

The tapeti (Sylvilagus brasiliensis), also known as the Brazilian cottontail or forest cottontail, is a species of cottontail rabbit. It is small to medium-sized with a small, dark tail, short hind feet, and short ears. As traditionally defined, its range extends from southern Mexico to northern Argentina, but this includes several distinctive population that recent authorities have recommended splitting into separate species. Under this narrower definition, the true tapeti only occurs in the Atlantic Rainforest of coastal northeastern Brazil and it is classified as “Endangered” by the IUCN.
