Animal Weight

How much does a Cacomistle weight?

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

An adult Cacomistle (Bassariscus sumichrasti) on average weights 906 grams (2 lbs).

The Cacomistle is from the family Procyonidae (genus: Bassariscus). They can live for up to 23 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 42.5 cm (1′ 5″). Usually, Cacomistles have 2 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 Cacomistle is 906 grams (2 lbs)

The cacomistle (Bassariscus sumichrasti) is a nocturnal, arboreal and omnivorous member of the carnivoran family Procyonidae. Its preferred habitats are wet, tropical, evergreen woodlands and mountain forests, though seasonally it will venture into drier deciduous forests.Nowhere in its range (from southern Mexico to western Panama) is B. sumichrasti common. This is especially true in Costa Rica, where it inhabits only a very small area. It is completely dependent on forest habitat, making it particularly susceptible to deforestation.The term cacomistle is from the Nahuatl language (tlahcomiztli) and means “half cat” or “half mountain lion”; it is sometimes also used to refer to the ringtail, Bassariscus astutus, a similar species that inhabits arid northern Mexico and the American Southwest.
