How much does a Black squirrel monkey weight?

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

An adult Black squirrel monkey (Saimiri vanzolinii) on average weights 784 grams (1.73 lbs).

The Black squirrel monkey is from the family Cebidae (genus: Saimiri). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 30.9 cm (1′ 1″). Usually, Black squirrel monkeys 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 black squirrel monkey (Saimiri vanzolinii), also known as the blackish squirrel monkey or black-headed squirrel monkey, is a small New World primate, endemic to the central Amazon in Brazil. It largely resembles the female of the far more common Bolivian squirrel monkey, though the latter lacks the black central back.This squirrel monkey has one of the most restricted geographical distributions for a primate, living in várzea forest in the confluence of the Japura and Solimões rivers. Its entire range is within the Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve. It resides in the reserve with two other Saimiri species. It is a social primate that travels with other black squirrel monkeys in large troops within its habitat. Its small size makes it an easy target for its predators; however, it may resist predators when it travels in large troops.Its species overall has positive effects on the economy.
