The weight of a mouse is typically an average of 12 to 30 g. While most mice typically live two to three years, the Methuselah Mouse Prize — an award administered by a non-profit organization which advances aging-related research — was once awarded to a team of scientists whose research resulted in a mouse living just under five years.
