How much does a Ginkgo-toothed beaked whale weight?

It is hard to guess what a Ginkgo-toothed beaked whale weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Ginkgo-toothed beaked whale (Mesoplodon ginkgodens) on average weights 1500 kg (3306.93 lbs).

The Ginkgo-toothed beaked whale is from the family Ziphiidae (genus: Mesoplodon). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 4.88 meter (16′ 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 ginkgo-toothed beaked whale (Mesoplodon ginkgodens) is a poorly known species of whale even for a beaked whale, and was named for the unusual shape of its dual teeth. It is a fairly typical-looking species, but is notable for the males not having any scarring.
