Animal Weight

How much does a Pig-tailed langur weight?

It is hard to guess what a Pig-tailed langur weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Pig-tailed langur (Nasalis concolor) on average weights 7.39 kg (16.29 lbs).

The Pig-tailed langur is from the family Cercopithecidae (genus: Nasalis). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 49.9 cm (1′ 8″). Usually, Pig-tailed langurs 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 pig-tailed langur (Simias concolor), monotypic in genus Simias, is a large Old World monkey, endemic to several small islands off the coast of Sumatra in Indonesia. Its face is black, its fur is blackish-brown and it has a relatively short tail. It is a diurnal species, feeding in small groups in the rainforest canopy on leaves, and to a lesser extent, fruit and berries. Little is known of its natural history, but it is heavily hunted, its populations have been declining rapidly and the International Union for Conservation of Nature has assessed its conservation status as being “critically endangered”. It has been included on a list of the World’s 25 Most Endangered Primates.
