How much does a Black snub-nosed monkey weight?

It is hard to guess what a Black snub-nosed monkey weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Black snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus bieti) on average weights 11 kg (24.25 lbs).

The Black snub-nosed monkey is from the family Cercopithecidae (genus: Rhinopithecus). It is usually born with about 424 grams (0.93 lbs). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 71.8 cm (2′ 5″).

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 black snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus bieti), also known as the Yunnan snub-nosed monkey, is a large black and white primate that lives only in the southern Chinese province of Yunnan, where it is known to the locals as the Yunnan golden hair monkey (滇金丝猴) and the black-and-white snub-nosed monkey (黑白仰鼻猴). The common name, black snub-nosed monkey, is issued to Rhinopithecus strykeri, inhabiting in Northern Sino-Myanmar border. Coniferous and deciduous forests in the mountainous regions of Yunnan are the ideal terrain for these primates. It is threatened by habitat loss, and is considered an endangered species. With their unique adaptations to their environment, these monkeys thrive at extreme altitudes despite the below freezing temperatures and thin air. This primate’s diet is mainly made up of the large amounts of lichens available in their region. Recent studies have provided more information on the black-and-white snub-nosed monkey, but there is still much to learn about them.
