Animal Weight

How much does a Hoary fox weight?

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

An adult Hoary fox (Lycalopex vetulus) on average weights 4.23 kg (9.33 lbs).

The Hoary fox is from the family Canidae (genus: Lycalopex). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 60 cm (2′ 0″). Usually, Hoary foxs have 3 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 hoary fox or hoary zorro (Lycalopex vetulus), also known as raposinha-do-campo in Brazil (Portuguese for “meadow fox”), is a species of zorro or “false” fox endemic to Brazil. Unlike many other foxes, it feeds primarily on small invertebrates such as insects.
