How much does a Guadalupe fur seal weight?

It is hard to guess what a Guadalupe fur seal weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Guadalupe fur seal (Arctocephalus townsendi) on average weights 101.03 kg (222.74 lbs).

The Guadalupe fur seal is from the family Otariidae (genus: Arctocephalus). They can live for up to 24 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 1.71 meter (5′ 8″). Usually, Guadalupe fur seals have 1 babies per litter.

The Guadalupe fur seal (Arctocephalus townsendi) is one of six members of the fur seal genus Arctocephalus. Sealers reduced the population to just a few dozen by the late 19th century, but the species had recovered to 10,000 in number by the late 1990s. Many individuals can be found on Mexico’s Guadalupe Island.
