Animal Weight

How much does a Sable weight?

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

An adult Sable (Martes zibellina) on average weights 1.17 kg (2.58 lbs).

The Sable is from the family Mustelidae (genus: Martes). It is usually born with about 31 grams (0.07 lbs). They can live for up to 15 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 45.1 cm (1′ 6″). Usually, Sables 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 sable (Martes zibellina) is a species of marten, a small omnivorous mammal primarily inhabiting the forest environments of Russia, from the Ural Mountains throughout Siberia, and northern Mongolia. Its habitat also borders eastern Kazakhstan, China, North Korea and Hokkaidō, Japan. Its range in the wild originally extended through European Russia to Poland and Scandinavia. Historically, it has been hunted for its highly valued dark brown or black fur, which remains a luxury good to this day. While hunting is still common in Russia, most fur on the market is now commercially farmed.
