How much does a Ground cuscus weight?

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

An adult Ground cuscus (Strigocuscus gymnotis) on average weights 2.61 kg (5.75 lbs).

The Ground cuscus is from the family Phalangeridae (genus: Strigocuscus). They can live for up to 12 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 45.4 cm (1′ 6″). Usually, Ground cuscuss 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 ground cuscus (Phalanger gymnotis) is a marsupial from the order Diprotodontia and belongs within the family Phalangeridae, a diverse family consisting of the other cuscus species and the brushtail possums (Trichosurus spp.) and the scaly-tailed possum (Wyulda squamicaudata).
