Animal Weight

How much does a Caspian seal weight?

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

An adult Caspian seal (Pusa caspica) on average weights 62.33 kg (137.41 lbs).

The Caspian seal is from the family Phocidae (genus: Pusa). It is usually born with about 4.18 kg (9.22 lbs). They can live for up to 50 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 1.41 meter (4′ 8″). Usually, Caspian seals 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 Caspian seal (Pusa caspica) is one of the smallest members of the earless seal family and unique in that it is found exclusively in the brackish Caspian Sea. They are found not only along the shorelines, but also on the many rocky islands and floating blocks of ice that dot the Caspian Sea. In winter, and cooler parts of the spring and autumn season, these marine mammals populate the Northern Caspian. As the ice melts in the warmer season, they can be found on the mouths of the Volga and Ural Rivers, as well as the southern latitudes of the Caspian where cooler waters can be found due to greater depth.Evidence suggests the seals are descended from Arctic ringed seals that reached the area from the north during an earlier part of the Quaternary period and became isolated in the landlocked Caspian Sea when continental ice sheets melted.
