How much does a Barasingha weight?

It is hard to guess what a Barasingha weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Barasingha (Rucervus duvaucelii) on average weights 171.22 kg (377.48 lbs).

The Barasingha is from the family Cervidae (genus: Rucervus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 1.5 meter (5′ 0″). Usually, Barasinghas have 1 babies per litter.

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 Barasingha is 171.22 kg (377.48 lbs)

The barasingha (Rucervus duvaucelii), also called swamp deer, is a deer species distributed in the Indian subcontinent. Populations in northern and central India are fragmented, and two isolated populations occur in southwestern Nepal. It is extinct in Pakistan and Bangladesh.The specific name commemorates the French naturalist Alfred Duvaucel.The swamp deer differs from all other Indian deer species in that the antlers carry more than three tines. Because of this distinctive character it is designated bārah-singgā, meaning “twelve-horned” in Hindustani. Mature stags usually have 10 to 14 tines, and some have been known to have up to 20.In Assamese, barasingha is called dolhorina; dol meaning swamp.
