How much does a Western red colobus weight?

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

An adult Western red colobus (Procolobus badius) on average weights 8.43 kg (18.58 lbs).

The Western red colobus is from the family Cercopithecidae (genus: Procolobus). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 57.4 cm (1′ 11″). Usually, Western red colobuss have 1 babies per litter.

The western red colobus (Piliocolobus badius), also known as the bay red colobus, rust red colobus or Upper Guinea red colobus, is a species of Old World monkey in West African forests from Senegal to Ghana. All other species of red colobuses have formerly been considered subspecies of P. badius. It is often hunted by the common chimpanzee. In 1994, western red colobus monkeys infected many chimpanzees with Ebola virus when they were hunted and eaten by the chimpanzees.
