How much does a Golden angwantibo weight?

It is hard to guess what a Golden angwantibo weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Golden angwantibo (Arctocebus aureus) on average weights 235 grams (0.52 lbs).

The Golden angwantibo is from the family Loridae (genus: Arctocebus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 78.7 cm (2′ 7″).

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 golden angwantibo (Arctocebus aureus) is a strepsirrhine primate of the family Lorisidae. It shares the genus Arctocebus with the Calabar angwantibo (Arctocebus calabarensis) and together they are commonly called the golden pottos. The goldenangwantibo is found in Cameroon, the Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. Its usual habitat is rain forest, but it has also been known to live on farmland.Like the Calabar angwantibo, the golden angwantibo weighs between 266 and 465 grams and has a stumpy tail, abbreviated index fingers, a specialised grooming claw on each foot and a white line on its face. It can be distinguished from its cousin largely by its colour. The fur on its back is red-gold, with a more muted red on its belly. Unlike the Calabar angwantibo, the golden angwantibo has no nictitating membrane.The golden angwantibo is a nocturnal and arboreal species that is typically found on small branches 5–15 metres above ground. Its diet consists of around 85% insects (especially caterpillars) and 14% fruit. Its foraging, antipredator, social and reproductive behaviour are extremely similar to those of the Calabar angwantibo.
