Animal Weight

How much does a Yellow-necked mouse weight?

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

An adult Yellow-necked mouse (Apodemus flavicollis) on average weights 31 grams (0.07 lbs).

The Yellow-necked mouse is from the family Muridae (genus: Apodemus). It is usually born with about 2 grams (0 lbs). They can live for up to 4 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 10.3 cm (0′ 5″). On average, Yellow-necked 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 average adult weight of a Yellow-necked mouse is 31 grams (0.07 lbs)

The yellow-necked mouse (Apodemus flavicollis), also called yellow-necked field mouse, yellow-necked wood mouse, and South China field mouse, is closely related to the wood mouse, with which it was long confused. It was only recognised as a separate species in 1894. It differs in its band of yellow fur around the neck and in having slightly larger ears and usually being slightly larger overall. Around 100 mm in length, it can climb trees and sometimes overwinters in houses. It is found mostly in mountainous areas of southern Europe, but extends north into parts of Scandinavia and Britain. It facilitates the spread of tick-borne encephalitis to humans and is a reservoir species for the Dobrava virus, a hantavirus that is responsible for causing haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome.
