How much does a Gray flying fox weight?

It is hard to guess what a Gray flying fox weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Gray flying fox (Pteropus griseus) on average weights 90 grams (0.2 lbs).

The Gray flying fox is from the family Pteropodidae (genus: Pteropus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 15.9 cm (0′ 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 gray flying fox (Pteropus griseus) is a species of flying fox in the family Pteropodidae. It is not to be confused with the grey flying fox (Pteropus poliocephalus). It is found in Indonesia, but not in the Philippines, despite occasional reference to such. Very little is known about this species. The gray flying fox has small size and neutral coloration with a brownish head and an orange abdomen. It probably roosts individually or in small groups. It was listed on appendix II of CITES, and is classified as “Data Deficient” by the IUCN. This species has been decimated by hunting for bushmeat in Indonesia.The hunters use fishing hooks, ropes, and other supplies to hunt the bats. The ropes and hooks are placed along their flight paths, tearing and ensnaring the bats’ wings when are flying. In the course of a hunting season, entire colonies can be killed.
