Animal Weight

How much does a Milne-Edwards’s sifaka weight?

It is hard to guess what a Milne-Edwards’s sifaka weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Milne-Edwards’s sifaka (Propithecus edwardsi) on average weights 6.57 kg (14.49 lbs).

The Milne-Edwards’s sifaka is from the family Indriidae (genus: Propithecus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 37 cm (1′ 3″).

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.

Milne-Edwards’s sifaka (Propithecus edwardsi), or Milne-Edwards’s simpona, is a large arboreal, diurnal lemur endemic to the eastern coastal rainforest of Madagascar. Milne-Edwards’s sifaka is characterized by a black body with a light-colored “saddle” on the lower part of its back. It is closely related to the diademed sifaka, and was until recently considered a subspecies of it. Like all sifakas, it is a primate in the family Indriidae.
