How much does a Common duiker weight?

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

An adult Common duiker (Sylvicapra grimmia) on average weights 15.57 kg (34.33 lbs).

The Common duiker is from the family Bovidae (genus: Sylvicapra). It is usually born with about 1.58 kg (3.49 lbs). They can live for up to 14.25 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 96.1 cm (3′ 2″). On average, Common duikers can have babies 2 times per year with a litter size of 1.

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 common duiker (Sylvicapra grimmia), also known as the grey or bush duiker, is a small antelope found everywhere in Africa south of the Sahara, excluding the Horn of Africa and the rainforests of the central and western parts of the continent. Generally, they are found in habitats with sufficient vegetation cover to allow them to hide—savanna and hilly areas, including the fringes of human settlements.
