Animal Weight

How much does a White-ankled mouse weight?

It is hard to guess what a White-ankled mouse weights. But we have the answer:

An adult White-ankled mouse (Peromyscus pectoralis) on average weights 38 grams (0.08 lbs).

The White-ankled mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Peromyscus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 12.4 cm (0′ 5″). On average, White-ankled mouses can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 3.

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 white-ankled mouse (Peromyscus pectoralis) is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae.It is found in Mexico and in New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas in the United States.The white-ankled mouse is commonly found in coexistence with the Brush mouse and Texas mouse (P. boylii and P. attaweri). Often, the sympatric overlap in characteristics between these species makes it difficult to identify a specific species. The most distinguishing feature of the white-ankled mouse, and the one most used to identify the species, is the baculum of males (Hooper 1958). The tip of the white-ankled mouse’s baculum is long and cartilaginous, whereas the tip of the Brush and Texas mouse is short and rounded (Clark 1952 and Hooper 1958).
