Animal Weight

How much does a Wongai ningaui weight?

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

An adult Wongai ningaui (Ningaui ridei) on average weights 9 grams (0.02 lbs).

The Wongai ningaui is from the family Dasyuridae (genus: Ningaui). They can live for up to 2 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 7.8 cm (0′ 4″). On average, Wongai ningauis can have babies 2 times per year with a litter size of 5.

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.

Wongai ningaui, a common name of Ningaui ridei, is a tiny carnivorous marsupial native to the arid open grasslands of inland Australia. Their diet is mainly small insects, and occasionally larger prey such as spiders, grasshoppers and cockroaches, which they forage for at the ground and in clumps of spinifex. They have long and untidy fur, grey or gingery brown with longer black hairs, small ears, a narrow muzzle, and possess a partially prehensile tail and feet that allow them to climb. The population occurs sparsely across a wide area and common in favourable habitat, especially in years of good rainfall. Ningaui ridei was first described in 1975, one of two species of a new genus discovered amongst the poorly known mammals of the western regions of Australia.
