How much does a Ceram fruit bat weight?

It is hard to guess what a Ceram fruit bat weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Ceram fruit bat (Pteropus ocularis) on average weights 228 grams (0.5 lbs).

The Ceram fruit bat is from the family Pteropodidae (genus: Pteropus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 20.2 cm (0′ 8″).

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 Ceram fruit bat or Seram flying fox (Pteropus ocularis) is a species of megabat in the family Pteropodidae. It is endemic to the mountainous forests of two Indonesian islands, Buru and Seram, including the Manusela National Park on Seram. They were once present on the nearby Ambon Island, but probably not anymore. The habitat has an area of less than 20,000 km2, and is decreasing due to logging. For this reason, and because of hunting by the local population, these species are listed as vulnerable by the IUCN since 1996.
