Animal Weight

How much does a Wood mouse weight?

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

An adult Wood mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) on average weights 21 grams (0.05 lbs).

The Wood mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Apodemus). It is usually born with about 1 grams (0 lbs). They can live for up to 4.33 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 8.7 cm (0′ 4″). On average, Wood mouses can have babies 3 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.

The wood mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) is a murid rodent native to Europe and northwestern Africa. It is closely related to the yellow-necked mouse (Apodemus flavicollis) but differs in that it has no band of yellow fur around the neck, has slightly smaller ears, and is usually slightly smaller overall: around 90 mm (3.54 in) in length and 23 g in weight. It is found across most of Europe and is a very common and widespread species, is commensal with people and is sometimes considered a pest. Other common names are long-tailed field mouse, field mouse, common field mouse, and European wood mouse.
