How much does a Pygmy hog weight?

It is hard to guess what a Pygmy hog weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Pygmy hog (Sus salvanius) on average weights 7.92 kg (17.45 lbs).

The Pygmy hog is from the family Suidae (genus: Sus). They can live for up to 12 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 59.9 cm (2′ 0″). Usually, Pygmy hogs have 3 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 pygmy hog (Porcula salvania) is a suid native to alluvial grasslands in the foothills of the Himalayas at elevations of up to 300 m (980 ft). Today, the only known population lives in southern Bhutan and in Assam, India. As the population is estimated at less than 250 mature individuals, it is listed as Endangered on the IUCN Red List.
