How much does a Andrews’ beaked whale weight?

It is hard to guess what a Andrews’ beaked whale weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Andrews’ beaked whale (Mesoplodon bowdoini) on average weights 2600 kg (5732.01 lbs).

The Andrews’ beaked whale is from the family Ziphiidae (genus: Mesoplodon). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 4.26 meter (14′ 0″).

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.
