Animal Weight

How much does a Olive colobus weight?

It is hard to guess what a Olive colobus weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Olive colobus (Procolobus verus) on average weights 3.98 kg (8.77 lbs).

The Olive colobus is from the family Cercopithecidae (genus: Procolobus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 45.9 cm (1′ 7″). Usually, Olive colobuss have 1 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 olive colobus monkey (Procolobus verus), also known as the green colobus or Van Beneden’s colobus, is a species of primate in the family Cercopithecidae. Its English name refers to its dull olive upperparts. It is the smallest example of all colobine monkeys and is rarely observed in its natural habitat because of its cryptic coloration and secretive nature. It is found in the rain forests of West Africa, ranging from southern Sierra Leone to Nigeria. As of 2019, the IUCN Red List classifies the olive colobus as vulnerable (previously near threatened), with the cause of its decline attributed to habitat loss and hunting. Though much of the land within the range of the olive colobus has been affected by human activities, it retains its ability to thrive in small degraded forest fragments.
