Animal Weight

How much does a Sumatran serow weight?

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

An adult Sumatran serow (Capricornis sumatraensis) on average weights 110.94 kg (244.58 lbs).

The Sumatran serow is from the family Bovidae (genus: Capricornis). It is usually born with about 4.1 kg (9.04 lbs). They can live for up to 21 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 1.45 meter (4′ 10″). Usually, Sumatran serows 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 Sumatran serow (Capricornis sumatraensis), also known as the southern serow, is a species of goat-antelope native to mountain forests in the Thai-Malay Peninsula and on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The former name of this species is “mainland serow”, as all the mainland species of serow (Chinese, red and Himalayan) were previously considered subspecies of this species. The Sumatran serow is threatened due to habitat loss and hunting, leading to it being evaluated as vulnerable by the IUCN.
