QuikPic: Max gets weighed

The Keepers, have been using the new scale in the farmyard to get weights on the animals. That means a lot of training for Max: getting a leash on; walking “nicely” without pulling Kent around; no side field trips to eat plants; get all four feet on the scale and hold still… Success has occurred. Any guesses as to how much the heaviest animal at the Museum weighs?

    Bonus info: When Max stood on the scale the plate noticibly lowered itself and I have NEVER seen it do that before.

      Currently, Max weighs about 764 Kg (almost 1,700 pounds). Mimi, our oldest best, weighs about 160 Kg- (about 350 pounds)

    Wow..does this mean Max’s weight is more than the combined weight of all four bears? I remember seeing a keeper’s blog of him being bottle fed!!

    How does Max’s weight compare to Mr. Mooster? And how does it compare to an average jersey steer of his age? Just curious.

    Kathy and DJ:
    Max does weigh more than all four bears combined.

    We did not have the scale when Moo, a belted galloway, was at the Museum. I’d have to think that Moo weighed more though. As for Max, I think he’s on the big side for Jersey boys.
