It is hard to guess what a Persian fallow deer weights. But we have the answer:
An adult Persian fallow deer (Dama mesopotamica) on average weights 74.4 kg (164.02 lbs).
The Persian fallow deer is from the family Cervidae (genus: Dama). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 25.5 cm (0′ 11″).
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 Persian fallow deer (Dama dama mesopotamica) (گوزن زرد ایرانی gavazn-i zard irâni in Persian; יַחְמוּר yahmur in modern Hebrew; περσικο πλατωνι in Greek) is a rare ruminant mammal belonging to the family Cervidae. Its taxonomic status is disputed, with some maintaining it as a subspecies of the fallow deer, while others treat it as a separate species, Dama mesopotamica.
