Animal Weight

How much does a Grivet weight?

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

An adult Grivet (Chlorocebus aethiops) on average weights 3.86 kg (8.52 lbs).

The Grivet is from the family Cercopithecidae (genus: Chlorocebus). It is usually born with about 173 grams (0.38 lbs). They can live for up to 31.58 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 56 cm (1′ 11″). Usually, Grivets 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 average adult weight of a Grivet is 3.86 kg (8.52 lbs)

The grivet (Chlorocebus aethiops), also known as African green monkey and savannah monkey is an Old World monkey with long white tufts of hair along the sides of the face. Some authorities consider this and all of the members of the genus Chlorocebus to be a single species, Cercopithecus aethiops. As here defined, the grivet is restricted to Ethiopia, Sudan, Djibouti and Eritrea. In the southern part of its range, it comes into contact with the closely related vervet monkey (C. pygerythrus) and Bale Mountains vervet (C. djamdjamensis). Hybridization between them is possible, and may present a threat to the vulnerable Bale Mountains vervet. Unlike that species, the grivet is common and rated as Least Concern by the IUCN.
