Animal Weight

How much does a Woylie weight?

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

An adult Woylie (Bettongia penicillata) on average weights 1.22 kg (2.69 lbs).

The Woylie is from the family Potoroidae (genus: Bettongia). They can live for up to 6.5 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 33.1 cm (1′ 2″). On average, Woylies can have babies 3 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 Woylie is 1.22 kg (2.69 lbs)

The woylie or brush-tailed bettong (Bettongia penicillata) is an extremely rare, small marsupial, belonging to the genus Bettongia, that is endemic to Australia. There are two subspecies: B. p. ogilbyi, and the now extinct B. p. penicillata.
