How much does a Venezuelan red howler weight?

It is hard to guess what a Venezuelan red howler weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Venezuelan red howler (Alouatta seniculus) on average weights 6.41 kg (14.13 lbs).

The Venezuelan red howler is from the family Cebidae (genus: Alouatta). It is usually born with about 294 grams (0.65 lbs). They can live for up to 25 years. When reaching adult age, they grow up to 56.1 cm (1′ 11″). Usually, Venezuelan red howlers 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 Venezuelan red howler (Alouatta seniculus) is a South American species of howler monkey, a type of New World monkey, found in the western Amazon Basin in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil. The population in the Santa Cruz Department in Bolivia was split off as a separate species, the Bolivian red howler, in 1986, and more recently, splitting off the population in northeastern South America and Trinidad as the Guyanan red howler has occurred. All howler monkeys belong to the family Atelidae and the infraorder Platyrrhini (New World monkeys).
