How much does a Northern olingo weight?

It is hard to guess what a Northern olingo weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Northern olingo (Bassaricyon pauli) on average weights 1.2 kg (2.65 lbs).

The Northern olingo is from the family Procyonidae (genus: Bassaricyon). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 18.2 cm (0′ 8″).

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 northern olingo (Bassaricyon gabbii), also known as the bushy-tailed olingo or as simply the olingo (due to it being the most commonly seen of the species), is a tree-dwelling member of the family Procyonidae, which also includes raccoons. It was the first species of olingo to be described, and while it is considered by some authors to be the only genuine olingo species, a recent review of the genus Bassaricyon has shown that there are a total of four olingo species, although two of the former species should now be considered as a part of this species. Its scientific name honors William More Gabb, who collected the first specimen. It is native to Central America.
