Animal Weight

How much does a Bornean yellow muntjac weight?

It is hard to guess what a Bornean yellow muntjac weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Bornean yellow muntjac (Muntiacus atherodes) on average weights 18.87 kg (41.6 lbs).

The Bornean yellow muntjac is from the family Cervidae (genus: Muntiacus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 99.5 cm (3′ 4″).

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 Bornean yellow muntjac (Muntiacus atherodes) is restricted to the moist forests of Borneo where it lives alongside the common muntjac. It is similar to its much more common cousin and was only recently recognised as a separate species. Apart from the color difference, its antlers, which are just 7 cm (2.8 in) in length, are smaller than those of the common muntjac. It has not been extensively studied and has been described a relict species.This muntjac species is a potential prey of the Bornean tiger.
