How much does a Spectacled flying fox weight?

It is hard to guess what a Spectacled flying fox weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Spectacled flying fox (Pteropus conspicillatus) on average weights 759 grams (1.67 lbs).

The Spectacled flying fox is from the family Pteropodidae (genus: Pteropus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 25.3 cm (0′ 10″). Usually, Spectacled flying foxs 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 spectacled flying fox (Pteropus conspicillatus), also known as the spectacled fruit bat, is a megabat that lives in Australia’s north-eastern regions of Queensland. It is also found in New Guinea and on the offshore islands including Woodlark Island, Alcester Island, Kiriwina, and Halmahera.The spectacled flying fox was listed as a threatened species under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act of 1991. They were considered vulnerable due to a significant decline in numbers as a result of loss of their prime feeding habitat and secluded camp sites. It has also been reported that spectacled flying foxes skim over the surface of water to drink and are sometimes eaten by crocodiles. The species was classified as “least concern” by the IUCN in 2008.In February 2019 the Australian government upgraded the threatened status from vulnerable to endangered, after almost a third of the bat population died in a severe heatwave in Queensland in late 2018.
