Animal Weight

How much does a Rough-toothed dolphin weight?

It is hard to guess what a Rough-toothed dolphin weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Rough-toothed dolphin (Steno bredanensis) on average weights 130 kg (286.6 lbs).

The Rough-toothed dolphin is from the family Delphinidae (genus: Steno). They can live for up to 32 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 2.44 meter (8′ 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 rough-toothed dolphin (Steno bredanensis) is a species of dolphin that can be found in deep warm and tropical waters around the world.The species was first described by Georges Cuvier in 1823. The genus name Steno, of which this species is the only member, comes from the Greek for ‘narrow’, referring to the animal’s beak — which is a diagnostic characteristic of the species. The specific name honours van Breda, who studied Cuvier’s writings. There are no recognised subspecies.
