How much does a Bontebok weight?

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

An adult Bontebok (Damaliscus pygargus) on average weights 77.24 kg (170.29 lbs).

The Bontebok is from the family Bovidae (genus: Damaliscus). It is usually born with about 6.87 kg (15.15 lbs). They can live for up to 21.67 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 1.7 meter (5′ 7″). Usually, Bonteboks have 1 babies per litter.
