How much does a Pantropical spotted dolphin weight?

It is hard to guess what a Pantropical spotted dolphin weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Pantropical spotted dolphin (Stenella attenuata) on average weights 65.72 kg (144.88 lbs).

The Pantropical spotted dolphin is from the family Delphinidae (genus: Stenella). It is usually born with about 10 kg (22.05 lbs). They can live for up to 46 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 2.14 meter (7′ 1″).

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 average adult weight of a Pantropical spotted dolphin is 65.72 kg (144.88 lbs)

The pantropical spotted dolphin (Stenella attenuata) is a species of dolphin found in all the world’s temperate and tropical oceans. The species was beginning to come under threat due to the killing of millions of individuals in tuna purse seines. In the 1980s, the rise of “dolphin-friendly” tuna capture methods saved millions of the species in the eastern Pacific Ocean and it is now one of the most abundant dolphin species in the world.
