How much does a White-throated round-eared bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a White-throated round-eared bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult White-throated round-eared bat (Lophostoma silvicolum) on average weights 32 grams (0.07 lbs).

The White-throated round-eared bat is from the family Phyllostomidae (genus: Lophostoma). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 51 cm (1′ 9″). Normally, White-throated round-eared bats can have babies 2 times a year.

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-throated round-eared bat (Lophostoma silvicolum) is a South and Central American bat species found from Honduras to Bolivia, Paraguay and Brazil. It creates roosts inside the nests of the termite, Nasutitermes corniger. It thrives on a mainly insect-based diet, focusing on the surfaces of foliage to hunt, and also eats fruit and pollen. It has a very wide range and is a common species over much of that range, so the International Union for Conservation of Nature has assessed its conservation status as being of “least concern”.
