How much does a Yellow-cheeked chipmunk weight?

It is hard to guess what a Yellow-cheeked chipmunk weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Yellow-cheeked chipmunk (Tamias ochrogenys) on average weights 91 grams (0.2 lbs).

The Yellow-cheeked chipmunk is from the family Sciuridae (genus: Tamias). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 15.1 cm (0′ 6″).

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 yellow-cheeked chipmunk (Neotamias ochrogenys), also known as the redwood chipmunk, is a species of rodent in the squirrel family, Sciuridae. It is endemic to areas near the coast of northern California in the United States where it inhabits coastal coniferous forest.
