Animal Weight

How much does a Yellow-tailed woolly monkey weight?

It is hard to guess what a Yellow-tailed woolly monkey weights. But we have the answer:

An adult Yellow-tailed woolly monkey (Oreonax flavicauda) on average weights 8.23 kg (18.14 lbs).

The Yellow-tailed woolly monkey is from the family Atelidae (genus: Oreonax). When reaching adult age, they grow up to 55 cm (1′ 10″). Usually, Yellow-tailed woolly monkeys 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 yellow-tailed woolly monkey (Oreonax flavicauda) is a New World monkey endemic to Peru. It is a rare primate species found only in the Peruvian Andes, in the departments of Amazonas and San Martin, as well as bordering areas of La Libertad, Huánuco, and Loreto. The yellow-tailed woolly monkey was at first classified in the genus Lagothrix along with other woolly monkeys, but due to debatable primary sources, they have been placed in Oreonax. Oreonax has been proposed to be a subgenus of Lagothrix, but others have regarded it as a full genus. A recent extensive study suggests that the yellow-tailed woolly monkey may indeed be in Lagothrix.
