How much does a Hose’s langur weight?

It is hard to guess what a Hose’s langur weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Hose’s langur (Presbytis hosei) on average weights 6.29 kg (13.86 lbs).

The Hose’s langur is from the family Cercopithecidae (genus: Presbytis). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 51 cm (1′ 9″).

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.

Hose’s langur (Presbytis hosei) is a species of primate in the family Cercopithecidae endemic to the island of Borneo, including Brunei, Kalimantan (Indonesia), and East Malaysia. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. It is threatened by habitat loss. It was first identified in Kutai National Park and Sangkulirang Peninsula, East Kalimantan, Indonesia, in 1985.Miller’s langur (P. canicrus) and the Saban grizzled langur (P. sabana) were previously considered subspecies of Hose’s langur. There used to also be two additional forms that were considered separate subspecies, P. h. hosei and P. h. everetti. However, P. h. everetti is no longer considered to be a separate subspecies as the original identification of it as a separate subspecies appears to be the result of comparing a subadult female with an adult male.
