How much does a Lyle’s flying fox weight?

It is hard to guess what a Lyle’s flying fox weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Lyle’s flying fox (Pteropus lylei) on average weights 319 grams (0.7 lbs).

The Lyle’s flying fox is from the family Pteropodidae (genus: Pteropus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 23.7 cm (0′ 10″).

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.
