Animal Weight

How much does a Common kusimanse weight?

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

An adult Common kusimanse (Crossarchus obscurus) on average weights 1.39 kg (3.07 lbs).

The Common kusimanse is from the family Herpestidae (genus: Crossarchus). It is usually born with about 9 grams (0.02 lbs). They can live for up to 9 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 33.9 cm (1′ 2″). On average, Common kusimanses can have babies 2 times per year with a litter size of 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 average adult weight of a Common kusimanse is 1.39 kg (3.07 lbs)
