Takin size: How big do they get?

How big does a Takin get? Here is an overview over the average adult age:

A grown Takin (Budorcas taxicolor) reaches an average size of 1.74 meter (5′ 9″).

When born, they have an average size of 0 cm (0′ 0″). Usually, they reach an age of 19.5 years. A full-grown exemplary reaches roughly 292.76 kg (645.42 lbs). A Takin has 1 babies at once. The Takin (genus: Budorcas) is a member of the family Bovidae.

As a reference: Humans reach an average body size of 1.65m (5′ 5″) while carrying 62 kg (137 lbs). A human woman is pregnant for 280 days (40 weeks) and on average become 75 years old.

The average adult size of a Takin is  (5' 9

The takin (; Budorcas taxicolor; Tibetan: ར་རྒྱ་, Wylie: ra rgya), also called cattle chamois or gnu goat, is a large species of ungulate of the subfamily Caprinae found in the eastern Himalayas. The four subspecies are the Mishmi takin (B. t. taxicolor), the golden takin (B. t. bedfordi), the Tibetan (or Sichuan) takin (B. t. tibetana), and the Bhutan takin (B. t. whitei). Whilst the takin has in the past been placed together with the muskox in the tribe Ovibovini, more recent mitochondrial research shows a closer relationship to Ovis (sheep). Its physical similarity to the muskox is therefore an example of convergent evolution. The takin is the national animal of Bhutan.
