How much does a Grey-headed flying fox weight?

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

An adult Grey-headed flying fox (Pteropus poliocephalus) on average weights 702 grams (1.55 lbs).

The Grey-headed flying fox is from the family Pteropodidae (genus: Pteropus). It is usually born with about 70 grams (0.15 lbs). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 27.2 cm (0′ 11″). On average, Grey-headed flying foxs can have babies 1 times per year with a litter size of 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 grey-headed flying fox (Pteropus poliocephalus) is a megabat native to Australia. The species shares mainland Australia with three other members of the genus Pteropus: the little red P. scapulatus, spectacled P. conspicillatus, and the black P. alecto.The grey-headed flying fox is endemic to the south-eastern forested areas of Australia, principally east of the Great Dividing Range. Its range extends approximately from Bundaberg in Queensland to Geelong in Victoria, with outlying colonies in Ingham and Finch Hatton in the north, and in Adelaide in the south. In the southern parts of its range it occupies more extreme latitudes than any other Pteropus species.
