Animal Weight

How much does a Golden snub-nosed monkey weight?

It is hard to guess what a Golden snub-nosed monkey weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Golden snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana) on average weights 13.46 kg (29.67 lbs).

The Golden snub-nosed monkey is from the family Cercopithecidae (genus: Rhinopithecus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 64.7 cm (2′ 2″). Usually, Golden snub-nosed monkeys have 1 babies per litter.

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 snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana) is an Old World monkey in the subfamily Colobinae. It is endemic to a small area in temperate, mountainous forests of central and Southwest China. They inhabit these mountainous forests of Southwestern China at elevations of 1,500-3,400 m above sea level. The Chinese name is Sichuan golden hair monkey (四川金丝猴). It is also widely referred to as the Sichuan snub-nosed monkey. Of the three species of snub-nosed monkeys in China, the golden snub-nosed monkey is the most widely distributed throughout China.Snow occurs frequently within its range and it can withstand colder average temperatures than any other non-human primates. Its diet varies markedly with the seasons, but it is primarily a herbivore with lichens being its main food source. It is diurnal and largely arboreal, spending some 97% of its time in the canopy. There are three subspecies. Population estimates range from 8,000 to 15,000 and it is threatened by habitat loss.
