Animal Weight

How much does a Zambian mole-rat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Zambian mole-rat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Zambian mole-rat (Cryptomys amatus) on average weights 76 grams (0.17 lbs).

The Zambian mole-rat is from the family Bathyergidae (genus: Cryptomys). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 21.4 cm (0′ 9″).

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 Zambian mole-rat (Fukomys amatus) is a species of rodent in the family Bathyergidae. It is found in Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was formerly considered a subspecies of Cryptomys hottentotus.
