  • The Carpentarian Antechinus is similar in size to a mouse.

The small Australian marsupial which, along with several other

species, comes under the heading of "marsupial mouse", measures

about 85mm (including its head and body) with its tail measuring

about 69mm. The tail of this animal is large relative to the size

of its body (about 80% of the total size of the body). The

Carpentarian Antechinus typically weighs in at approximately

17g.
